ARC will complete the deletion of Transaero Airlines (UN/670) from ARC effective January 25, 2016 (PED 01/31/16). Please submit any outstanding transactions prior to that time period. For more information, please contact the ARC Customer Care Center at 855-816-8003 or email@example.com.
The 2016 annual agent location fee of $206 will be collected for each of your office locations via electronic draft from your designated bank account on January 21, 2016. It will appear on your bank statement as "ARC Core Participation Fee." A separate draft of $206 will be issued for each active branch agency and Satellite Ticket Printer (STP) location of record as of January 8, 2016. For consolidated drafting agents, only one draft will be assessed for all of your ARC approved locations.
Additionally, ARC will be imposing a new tiered quarterly transaction fee structure. See the chart below outlining this tiered fee structure. Note, agencies with less than 1,000 transactions per quarter will not be assessed transaction fees.
|Number of transactions per quarter||Price per transaction|
|Tier 1||1,000 - 2,224.999M||.016|
|Tier 2||2.25 - 5.999M||.013|
|Tier 3||6M or more||.011|
This is a reminder about the agent/CTD transaction fee that is assessed on a quarterly basis. In 2015, the quarterly fee is set at $0.017 per transaction. An agency reporting an aggregate of less than 1,000 transactions per quarter will not be assessed a transaction fee. The maximum number of transactions for which an agency can be charged in a quarter is 2.25 million transactions (per entity). A separate debit representing this fee will be drawn against your ARC designated bank account on or after January 21, 2016. Only one draft will be issued for consolidated drafting agents.
Although the Interactive Agent Reporting (IAR) system stores the value of all settled tickets, it does not know the value of each coupon. This means that partial exchanges not issued using a GDS automatic repricing tool require agents to enter the unused, old base fare, tax breakdown and the old total in IAR.
Here's how to prompt IAR to populate the tax breakout entries on partial exchanges for you:
