IATA Resolution 722h defines two methods of processing data in a ground-handling environment: control and interactive. The control method requires the ground handler to obtain control of the electronic ticket and send “flown” coupon status updates to the operating carrier. The interactive method allows each airline to retain control of the electronic ticket and requires the ground handler to communicate all flight-coupon updates. 3rd Party Ground Handling E-Ticketing supports both data-processing methods.
3rd Party Ground Handling E-Ticketing allows greater distribution for airlines without the additional costs of supporting airline staff. It also creates partnerships with ground-handling companies and other airlines.
3rd Party Ground Handling E-Ticketing is more powerful with Airport Check-in, PNR and Revenue Accounting products.
Life of the flight
3rd Party Ground Handling E-Ticketing is beneficial in the area of day of operations.
