In ATSS (Air Transport Settlement System), a transportation represents a basic accounting and settlement unit.
A recipient of money for a transportation sold on ATSS STD is an issuing carrier, which is identified in the Settlement System by a unique accounting code.
In case of transportation sold on ATSS STDs, the following settlement options are available:
TCH reports to carriers for sold transportation in RUB, USD or EUR.
Based on sales results in a reporting ten-day period, TCH informs airlines thereof following 'Standard of Exchange Files for Carriers' and/or provides a HOT-file matching the 'CRS. Data Structure of Agency Sales Archive File' standard.
Settlement with airlines can be made in various currencies as well.
In case of a direct agreement between an airline and agency, settlement is made under the terms&conditions of that direct agreement (via TCH or not via TCH).
Claims are handled via TCH in 'My Account'. In this case, ADM/ACM forms complaint with international Standard Administrative Forms (SAF) are used.
