Following PSC adoption of the new SSIM Chapter 8 - Presentation, Application, and Transfer of Minimum Connecting Time (MCT) Data the new standards are now included in SSIM 28th Edition. This Chapter describes the rules for submission and application of MCT for processing. In order to facilitate industry-wide implementation, a range of optional features, such as the use of suppressions, codeshare indicators and other optional MCT data elements, etc. have been included. Cutover to the new MCT standard in Chapter 8 is October 27, 2019.
As a result, the Minimum Connecting Time (MCT) section under Appendix H has been deleted in SSIM and will remain in the Appendix H- MCT (pdf) and within the SISC website for reference until October 26, 2019.
This page is used as a repository of all documentation required for the awareness and implementation of the new MCT standards.
