In fare construction, the Maximum Permitted Mileage (MPM) distances represent the maximum distance between two specified international points established on the basis of the 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 where you can search for the MPM value by selecting the origin city name or city code and the destination city name or city code.

The three-letter and numeric city codes and two-letter province/territory and country codes used in the MPM Manual are published in the City Code Directory (CCD).

What’s new in the 2021 MPM Manual?

MPM constantly change as they are based on scheduled flights. As new routes are added or as other routes are decommissioned, it’s important to use the latest MPM dataset for fare construction and pricing. Using outdated data can lead to incorrect fare values and loss of revenue.
