Air Méditerranée is a French airline in operation since 1997 offering scheduled and chartered passenger flights as well as cargo flights to the Mediterranean region. Operating mostly out of Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) airport, the Air Méditerranée route map includes cities in Algeria, Croatia, France, Austria, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Lebanon, Morocco, Portugal, Senegal, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey and the United Kingdom.

Air Méditerranée sales commission is 0% on published fares to ARC accredited agents on all tickets issued on their stock (ML/853). The airline is displayed in Amadeus and Worldspan, and will be available in Sabre in the near future.

Tip of the Week: My ARC Security Questions

When you need to complete a My ARC password reset, consider updating your security questions at the same time. By updating your security questions, you will help make your password safer.

To access your security questions, go to the My ARC home page. The section above the tool list is labeled Your Profile. Click on the Details link to the right of Profile. The security questions will be the third item on the list on the Profile Details page.

Of course, you may change the security questions at any time if you believe your information has been compromised. The security questions are space and punctuation sensitive but not case sensitive. Note that to change any of your security questions, you must change all three at the same time and all three answers must be different. This is a necessary password integrity protocol.

If you have any questions, please contact the Customer Care Center at (855) 816-8003 or ccchelp@arccorp.com. We'd be more than happy to assist you.


Please distribute the ARC TAC among staff and colleagues.
