When calculating an airfare or to establish prorate factors, the Ticketed Point Mileage (TPM) needs to be determined. 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.

The official source for flown mileages between all points is the TPM Manual that includes more than 65,000 city pair mileages.

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

What’s new in the 2021 TPM Manual?

TPM 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 TPM dataset for fare construction and pricing. Using outdated data can lead to incorrect fare values and loss of revenue.
