SSR and OSI Field Use, Special Service Request Codes

from Annie Blog (link) to entire listing of OSI and SSR codes) instructions to agents. Most codes are IATA compliant, but airlines may use variants. This list may have had codes added since it was posted.

"Agents and carriers use the SSR and OSI fields for messaging with the airlines via teletype.

OSI is the acronym for Other Supplementary Information.
  • Use OSI messages (Other Supplementary Information) when you do not require action or a reply by the carrier.
  • They are low-priority messages and are usually used for information purpose only.
  • Cancel or removal of OSI messages do not generate to the carrier.
SSR is the acronym for Special Service Request.
  • Use SSR messages (Special Service Request) when you require an action or a reply to your request for these service items.
  • SSR requests can be the following and others:
  • Emergency Contact Information (PCTC)
  • INFT - Infant in a PNR
  • OTHS for CC Holder to Carriers
  • Passport Info (3PSPT)
  • Airline Passenger Information Secure Flight, APIS,-3DOCS, 3DOCO, 3DOCA // 4DOCA, PCTC
