A transportation is a basic accounting and settlement unit in the Air Transport Settlement System (ATSS).

The recipient of the monies for transportation sold on ATSS STDs shall be a responsible carrier identified in the Settlement System by its unique accounting code.

These are the options of settlements for transportation sold on ATSS STDs:

  • If transportation is carried out by one airline-ATSS participant, an accounting code of this airline (i.e. responsible carrier) must be specified when issuing the transportation. The settlement for sold transportation shall be made with a responsible carrier.
  • If transportation is carried out by more than one airlines under Interline Agreement, an accounting code of an ATSS participating carrier (i.e. responsible carrier) must be specified when issuing the transportation. The responsible carrier is determined by Interline Agreement (or if not), the accounting code of the first ATSS participating carrier en route must be specified. The settlement for sold transportation shall be made with a responsible carrier.
  • Transportation carried out by more than one ATSS participating airlines under Multilateral Agreement M2 (Multilateral Interline "Confidential Fare") shall be issued only at the through fares established for multiple segments. TCH settles monies for sold transportation with each airline participating in such transportation.
  • Transportation carried out by more than one ATSS participating airlines under Multilateral Agreement M1 (Multilateral Interline "Open Fare") shall be issued only at the fares established for travel segments. TCH settles monies for sold transportation with each airline participating in such transportation.

TCH develops sales reports for carriers in RF RUB, USD or EUR.

Based on sales results in the reporting ten-day period, TCH informs airlines thereof according to "Standard of Exchange Files for Carriers" and/or provides a HOT-file matching the Standard "CRS. Data Structure of Agency Sales Archive File".

Moreover, settlement with airlines can be made in various currencies.

The settlements can be made as per the terms & conditions of a direct agreement concluded between the Airline and the Agency (via TCH or not).

The claims can be handled via the "My Account" function using the standard international forms of filing claims ADM/ACM.
