Airlines, GDSs, computer reservation systems (CRS), service providers and travel agents use the three manuals included in the Mileage Suite for fare construction, pricing, revenue accounting, frequent flyer programs, baggage proration and to establish prorate factors.
The Mileage Suite is the only source for tariffs in the industry that provides standardized procedures for fare construction and pricing as per Resolution 011. Resolution 011 is referred to as the Mileages and Routes for Tariff Purposes that also denotes the details and applicability of Non-Stop Sector Mileages, Shortest Operated Mileages, Maximum Permitted Mileages and Ticketed Point Mileages.

What’s inside the Mileage Suite?
The Mileage Suite identifies the permitted total of ticket point mileages between two non-stop destinations or transit points, provides the official distance used between two cities, and decodes the various location/destination codes. We recommend purchasing these products together as the three manuals complement each other and provide you with all the information you need to make the correct calculations for fares. And, it’s cheaper! Each manual is also sold separately if that fits your needs better.
Maximum Permitted Mileage Manual (MPM): MPM distances represent the maximum distance between two specified international points established on the basis of shortest combinations of non-stop sectors and where applicable, over specified construction points, increased by 20%. The MPM Manual contains close to 7 million MPM distances.
Ticketed Point Mileage Manual (TPM): official source for flown mileages between all points including more than 65,000 city pair mileages. A TPM represents a distance covered by one flight coupon of a passenger ticket and is calculated on the basis of non-stop or through scheduled air services. TPMs are also used when establishing prorate factors.
City Code Directory (CCD): worldwide list of city, airport, country, province, state and territory names and codes for computing tariffs and creating mileage distances. It contains numerical and alphabetical codes, currencies, and IATA Tariff Conference areas.
How are MPM and TPM distances used?
The MPM Manual is used in fare construction to identify the permitted total of ticket point mileages between two non-stop destinations or transit points, and the TPM Manual provides the official distance used between two cities. The CCD decodes all the city, airport, country, province, state and territory names and codes.
In applying fare construction, the total TPM value of non-stop sectors must be checked against the MPM value. After adding up the TPM of each sector in the fare component, the sum of he TPM is compared to the published MPM. If the total TPM does not exceed the MPM, then the use of the direct route fare over an indirect routing is allowed. If the total TPM is greater then the MPM, the total TPM has to be reduced using the Extra Mileage Allowance (TPM deduction), if any. If the Extra Mileage Allowance is unavailable or insufficient, the fare is surcharged by 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% or 25%. To determine the excess mileage surcharge, divide the sum of TPMs by the MPM.
