Standards

The Passenger Services Resolutions Manual contains all the resolutions and recommended practices that IATA publishes for baggage handling, processes and pro-rates. This annually updated publication is available here.


Resolutions are mandatory practices for IATA member airlines, while RPs are created as a form of best practice, and can be implemented at the discretion of the airlines.
