How to create a group name in Amadeus

Create a group name in Amadeus: Group bookings in Amadeus PNR can be useful for a variety of travel arrangements, such as family vacations, business trips, or group tours. The agent can also use the group PNR to keep track of group-specific details, such as meal preferences, seating arrangements, or special requests.

How to create a group name in Amadeus

A group name element must be included in order to construct a group name. While creating the PNR, you may always add the group name. The element for the group name cannot be altered after the transaction has ended.

Use the transaction code NG, the number of passengers, and the group name to input the group name. Enter, for instance:


NGTransaction code
20Number of passengers (maximum of 99 passengers)
TOURGROUPGroup name (maximum of 53 characters)

System response:

0Group name element number
20The number of individual names assigned
TOUR GROUPGroup name (maximum of 53 characters)
NM:Assigned name counter
0Number for individual names assigned

Note: Element 0 of the PNR contains the group name.

The names you own that aren’t associated with a specific space are called unassigned names. Automatically, there are less unassigned names when:

  • Including specific names
  • breaking up or removing unassigned names

Accordingly, the allocated name counter is immediately raised.

Enter the element number (0), a slash (/), and the new group name to change the group name. Enter, for instance:

To input a specific person’s name, type, for instance:
