APG Network has built an Interline E-Ticketing “hub” with its own airline APG Airlines (GP-275). With the APG IET solution, airlines will only have to sign one single IET contract with APG Airlines to regain lost interline revenues instead of signing dozens or even hundreds of bilateral agreements.
- The APG IET solution is marketed and administered by APG Network. Royal Air Maroc sponsored our ICH membership.
- APG Airlines, a scheduled airline operating between Nice in Southern France and Bergamo in Northern Italy with a 7 seater BE-200 bi-turboprop and proposing French style luxury services, functions as the E-Ticketing platform and is the validating carrier.
-APG Airlines (GP-275) is linked to an Electronic Ticketing data base in Hitit CS ’ “Crane Pax” inventory system that communicates with the GDSs, including Amadeus, Galileo, Sabre, Worldspan, Apollo, Abacus and Topas. MONA LISA is our revenue accounting system.
-APG IET will use familiar IATA and ARC tools, including BSPs around the world and ARC in the United States plus ICH, ACH, ICCS, Card Clear, IDEC, iinet and SIS.
-Acceptable forms of payment include Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners and UATP.
-A joining airline will only have to sign one single reciprocal interline e-ticketing agreement with GP-275.APG will develop the Global Business Requirement (GBR) and required electronic links with the airline.
-84,000 IATA and ARC travel agencies (initially in 100 BSPs and ARC) will be able to issue Interline E-Tickets through GDS using the GP-code on IET partners of GP. Using our 200+ airline client base, we are assembling a portfolio of IET partners – many that an airline may not have connected with, or cannot get.
-Participating airlines will be paid on the usual basis according to the standard IATA rules, either via the IATA Clearing House or bilateral invoicing between the partner and GP.
