Below is a summary of ATPCO corporate and product news from the previous week ending 24 April.
- ATPCO is making two changes to ATPCO definitions for valid Country and Currency Codes, in accordance with IATA Resolution 024d. These revisions do not require any fare or rule data changes.
- In support of the Baggage Allowance and Charges, Optional Services, and Branded Fares products and in response to industry requests, ATPCO is creating new Industry Sub Codes.
- ATPCO has updated the list of carriers that file General Rule tariffs with the United States Department of Transportation (US DOT). The Canadian Transport Agency (CTA) maintains a list of carriers that file General Rule tariffs with the CTA, and that list is now available. These lists are used by systems to determine carriers whose baggage rules can be applied to journeys to/from the United States or Canada.
- The United States Department of Transportation (US DOT) has issued a notice to add Cuba as a Category B country to the list of tariff-filing exemptions under 14 CFR 293 for country pair markets.
