Billing on behalf of sponsored carrier

Hi

Sometimes a carrier is sponsored by an IATA member and IATA member performs revenue accounting of sponsored carrier.

In above situation, when sponsored carrier uplifts coupons of other airline, IATA member ( sponsoring carrier) bills on behalf of sponsored carrier and similarly when other airlines uplift coupons of sponsored carrier, they bill sponsoring IATA member.

Currently we handle such billings outside IDEC.

But going forward if these coupons are processed through IS, what should be the billed carrier in IS IDEC file in Pax-Invoice Header Record and Pax - coupon Data Record. Should it be sponsoring carrier code or sponsored carrier code.

Dear Shankar,

In the case you mentioned above, the billed carrier should be the sponsored carrier code.

Best regards

Dear Ashley

 

Thank you for your reply.

I have further query on this.

 

Assume BA is sponsoring carrier and AZ is sponsored carrier. EK has uplifted BA as well as AZ coupons.

 

1)      Will there be separate Form 1 for BA and AZ or Form 1 of BA will show invoice raised on AZ. Under non SIS Form 1 of BA will show invoice of AZ.

2)      Will both receive IS IDEC for their respective coupons or BA will receive IS IDEC on behalf of AZ.

3)      When AZ coupon is rejected, who will be raising RM and related invoice. Will it be AZ or BA. We prefer AZ. If BA rejects AZ coupons, we need to change our system to handle the situation.

4)      If AZ raises RM, will RM appear in IS IDEC from AZ.
