5 Character Location Code

Hi,

 

Refer to IS-XML Standard V3.1.1;

 

Line 17 Location Code and 367 Station code is 5 characters instead of 3 characters commonly used e.g. KUL.  What if other airline inward billing used more than 3 characters, will SIS reject?

 

If SIS accept, our system which is using 3 characters will not be able to validate.  Please clarify.

 

Regards,

Azuan

Dear Azuan,
 
For Location Code (Line 17), the validation is checking for a valid IATA City or Airport Code. An invalid code will fail validation.
 
For Station Code (Line 367), there is no validation on the code, so no rejection will apply.
 
Best regards

Dear Ashley,

Further to below pls, I would like to clarify on the following scenario:
 
The Original Invoice contains Charge Category, Charge Code and Location Code because Location Code is mandatory for that combination of Charge Category and Charge Code e.g. Ground Handling and Mishandling Baggage.
 
Let us say from this Original Invoice, because there are disputes, it leads to a Correspondence Invoice being raised. Will the Correspondence Invoice still contain the Location Code? When we check the sample Misc Output file sample, the Correspondence invoice Corr1234 is missing the Location Code, but has the Charge Category (Ground Handling) and Charge Code (Mishandling Baggage).
 
Thanks.

Dear Charissa,

 

Yes – the correspondence invoice should contain the Location Code. The sample file was manually inputted and was therefore missing this information.

 

As for the list of the Location Codes that are used in the validation, please refer to the Master Data Table Sources (just released and available on the SIS website) for this information.

 

Best regards,

Ashley
