TCH administers the rights of accredited agencies (points of sale (POS), internet points of sale (IPOS), transaction self service kiosks (TSSK)) to sell/refund air services on ATSS STDs in order to protect the interest of the ATSS participating carriers in accordance with the Settlement System Standards (SSS): SSS No.105-2006 "Computerized Reservation Systems. Procedures for Administration of Accredited Agencies (Points of Sale) Rights to Sell Transportation on ATSS STDs" and SSS No.EX105-2009 "Procedures for Administration of Accredited Agencies (Points of Sale) Rights to Sell Air Services on ATSS STDs via Foreign CRSs".

If the right of agency or POS to sell/refund air services on STDs is denied, a Computerized Reservation System (CRS) disables the function of ticket issuance (sale, exchange)/refund on STDs for this agency (POS, IPOS or TSSK).

To enable sales on STD forms and ATSS e-tickets in ATSS accredited CRS/GDSs, an Airline needs to activate option of air services sales on ATSS STDs.

The sale of ATSS STDs is supported by the following CRS/GDSs:

Sirena-Travel ADS
Galileo GDS
Sabre GDS
Amadeus GDS
