S i n g l e N e u t r a l V a l i d a t i n g C a r r i e r If the route marketing airlines or their GSA(s) do not have a valid interline ticketing agreement with all other marketing and operating airlines, who participate in the itinerary, and cannot be used as a validating airline, an attempt is made to find a ticketing solution with a neutral validation carrier. Neutral validation airlines vary by country and billing schedule. An attempt to find a neutral validation airline will only be made if no marketing airline participating in the itinerary (or its GSA) can be used as a validation airline due to invalid ticketing agreements. This is not applied if the tariff fails due to the validation of the tariff rules (e.B. NO COMBINABLE TARIFFS FOR THE CLASS USED). If only a neutral validator carrier leads to the solution with the lowest rate, that carrier will be returned as the validating carrier in the response. This section contains the following: Unique neutral validation carrier (see this page). Multiple neutral validation carriers (see Multiple neutral validation carriers, page -).
Examples of multiple neutral validation carriers (see Examples of multiple neutral validation carriers, page -). S i n g l e N e u t r a l V a l i d a t i n g C a r r i e r E x a m p l e s If the system finds a single neutral validation carrier, it will be returned as a validating carrier in the price response.

I n t r o d u c t i o n For a travel agency to issue a ticket (paper or electronic), the following validation checks are required:. The selected validator airline will participate in a ticketing billing plan such as ARC or BSP. The validation airline allows the issuance of the ticket with all marketing and operating airlines for the route segments to be completed; Line-spacing agreements. The ticket issuing agency has the power to issue on behalf of the airline. Currently, at the time of purchase and pricing, the only validation check that takes place is the items (above); However, when tickets are issued, all three checks are carried out. Due to inconsistent validation checks between purchases, prices, and ticketing, agents receive fares that ultimately cannot be provided with a ticket. This improvement aligns the carrier`s validation logic with purchases, pricing and ticketing, returning the solution with the lowest rate that can be charged. Note The final inspection (number) will continue to be performed only at the time the ticket is issued. This document provides an overview of the various changes to system inputs and responses that are included in this extension to validate carrier logic in purchasing, pricing, and ticketing.
For any terms you may not be familiar with, please read the glossary in this guide. S u m m a r y o f C h a n g e s Below is a summary of the main changes for each area included in this document: Improved validation of carrier selection at the time of purchases, prices and ticketing to present the lowest paying fare option. Alternative validating the proposed airlines for interline routes when needed. Possibility for non-participating member airlines of the institution to appoint a representative to issue tickets on their behalf by country.
