ARC Itinerary Detail

Segment level itinerary data for strategic decision making

ARC Itinerary Detail is the industry standard for agency point of sale business intelligence. It delivers detailed, segment level itinerary and ticketing information for all ARC-processed transactions, for all ARC participating carriers. Itinerary Detail provides fast insight into actual traffic, fares, and routes, allowing for a quick response to changes in the marketplace. Working with actual sales data, not projected bookings, allows carriers to efficiently compare their business to all other carriers in a market.

Itinerary Detail may also be used in conjunction with the compatible IATA PaxIS product to produce global settled data. Itinerary Detail uses the ARC standard file specification, and ARC has licensed this file specification to IATA, making a single, worldwide file specification available for the first time. This standard file specification makes it easier for carriers and other customers to aggregate data from ARC and IATA with individual carrier data, providing a cost-effective alternative to a combination of products purchased from multiple technology providers.
