More than 100 years after the first airmail flight, airmail remains an important means of global communications. However, a lack of a standardized tools or platform for the invoicing and settlement of charges between airlines and postal authorities is still largely processed bilaterally and manually, leading to multiple discrepancies, inefficiencies and high costs.
PASS (Postal Accounts Settlement System), developed in partnership with aviation and postal stakeholders, produces standard invoices to postal operators and automates invoicing and payment processes, facilitating airlines' postal billings & settlements and the reconciliation process.
Benefits for airlines and postal operators
- Connect - One global platform that connects Airlines and Postal Operators
- Collaborate - Partner with your Airlines through a central billing repository
- Standardize - Simplified process and industry standard format for proper compliance
- Settle - Easy access to your data and notifications for timely settlement
Resulting in drastic reduction in errors and costs.
