To date, this project has been successfully implemented in Domodedovo, Koltsovo, Tolmachevo, Vnukovo and Yemelyanovo airports supported by major airlines. The project has proved to be successful and its underlying technology was appraised by ATSS participating airlines and agencies.
М2 participation brings a range of benefits for airlines and airports including:
The below entities are participants of «M2-closed fare» Agreement (М2 Agreement):
Airport operates as M2 Agreement administrator and is entitled to:
Participants of М2 Agreement will sign Multilateral Agreement «M2-closed fare» governing conditions for their interaction.
The below relation patterns between airlines and Administrator are possible:
Participating airline authorizes Administrator to create fares on its behalf or sends to Administrator an official letter setting forth the essential fare conditions containing segment fares and through fare practices.
When airlines negotiate fares independently, they send the list of through fares and information on each airline share therein. Moreover, airlines send to the Administrator data concerning FARs and agency remuneration.
Thereupon, the Administrator creates through fares, registers and uploads through fares in GDS and monitors information related to airline prorates used for settlement.
Through fares are registered and uploaded in ADS Sirena-Travel via TAR-LINE, a system for online fare data registration.
The procedure for connection to the Administrator's Desktop via TCH Connect - see here.
TCH settles sold transfer transportation with each participating airline on the basis of its proration in relevant fare. Settlement is made each ten-day period in pursuance of TCH-Airline Model Agreement and guaranteed in full. Sales reports are submitted to each airline and the Administrator.
