Effective October 1, 2007, the ATB Usage Fee will increase by $.30 per box. This brings the cost to $12.80 per box of 1,000 coupons.
With more than 95% of all tickets processed electronically, the majority of ATB coupons printed are for non-traffic documents purposes such as passenger receipts. While the ability to print passenger receipts on ATB stock will not be inhibited, travel agents can choose whether to continue printing passenger receipts on ATB stock, plain paper options where available, or explore other electronic passenger receipt options provided by their GDS.
