BSP, SITA, ARINC by country (M-Class)

Q) Post SIS, will BSP, SITA and ARINC invoices be sent as a single invoice, or as one invoice per country? If the invoice is one per country, then the accounting can be streamlined, allocated directly to the correct country. Ref # BSP - 5.2.12.3 Charge Code: BSP # SITA - 5.2.7.1. Charge Code: Application Charges # ARINC - 5.2.7. Charge Category – IT Services

Dear David,
 
There is a mandatory field to define the location where the services were rendered; this could be defined at the header level or Line Item of the invoice.
In any case, this information is not dependent on the way the invoice is built.
 
Best regards

Thanks for the reply. Can you be more specific about the location?

 

For BSP, "Location" is mandatory at the line item level.

Is location the 3-letter IATA location code? Ref

http://www.iata.org/ps/publications/Pages/code-search.aspx

 

If yes, can location be a city, an airport, or both?

 

 

For ARINC and SITA, “Station Code" is mandatory at the line item level.

Is station code the 3-letter IATA location code?

 

If yes, can the station code be a city, an airport, or both?

Dear David,

Yes, I can clarify.
For BSP, 'Location' can be a city code or an IATA airport code.

For ARINC and SITA, the 'Station Code' is not an airport or city code, because in one airport you could have several station codes.

Best regards

Hi Ashley,
 
Further to this, may I pls find out under which circumstances would the Location be populated under Location Code at the line item level vs. the header level?
 
Currently the file specs mention that for combinations of Charge Category and Charge Code where Location Code is mandatory, the Location Code needs to be populated at either the header level or line item level. However, we do not know when to expect it at the header level and when to expect it at the line item level. Is it left up to individual airlines to populate at header vs. line item depending on how they assess the nature of the invoice?
 
Also, will it ever happen that BOTH the header level and line item level Location Code fields are populated? In such a scenario, is there a guideline on which one will supercede?
 
Thanks.

Hi Charissa,

 

An example of this may that you have 2 locations to be populated on the same invoice – in this case you would populate the location codes at the Line Item level accordingly.

 

It is up to the individual carriers to decide how to populate this to meet their tax/other billing requirements. However, Location Codes should be populated either at the header level or the line item level – but not both.

 

Hope this clarifies.

Best regards,

Ashley
