Transportation is the main accounting and settling unit within Air Transport Settlement System (ATSS).
The receiver of monies for transportation sold on CCS-TCH STDs is a responsible carrier identified within ATSS by a unique accounting code.
Settlement with airlines for transportation sold on CCS-TCH STDs may be effected under the following schemes:
TCH develops transportation sales reports for carriers in RF RUB, USD or EUR.
On the basis of sales results for the reporting ten-day period, TCH shall submit to airlines relevant data in pursuance of “Standard of Exchange Files for Carriers” and/or the HOT-file matching Standard "CRS. Data Structure of Agency Sales Archive File".
Moreover, settlement with airlines is possible in various currencies.
Under direct agreement between Airline and Agency, settlement is effected in pursuance of terms and conditions thereof (bypassing or via TCH). Transportation issued under Multilateral Agreement M2 are not covered by direct agreements.
Possible claims are handled via TCH Connect by way of ADM/ACM. ADM/ACM forms used within ATSS comply with international standard administrative ADM/ACM forms.
2016 Reporting schedule is developed in the form of Schedule #5 to Annex #3 to Model Agreement On Sales and Settlement Related to Air Services Issued on CCS-TCH STDs and E-Tickets.
