IATA e-services (EMD Implementation)
100% EMD in IATA BSP& achieved!
The goal set out in 2010 by the IATA Board of Governors to reach 100% EMD in the BSP has been achieved! Since 1 November 2014, travel agents can only issue Electronic Miscellaneous Document (EMD) in the IATA BSP.
Since the successful vMCO & vMPD sunset throughout 2014, all miscellaneous transactions are now replaced by EMD in IATA BSP worldwide. As a result, by December 2014, almost 190 airlines are using EMD standard to support both of their direct and indirect sales.
Congratulations to all IATA members and their providers for supporting this IATA initiative.
