Acting in accordance with the guidelines contained in this document will ensure that your transactions are conducted in smooth and complete manner and will reduce your ADM workload and your costs.

General Information:

As of 15 May 2017, through check-in cannot be made for passengers holding more than one ticket for their transit route. Check-in will be made for the destination of the respective ticket only. Passengers have to claim their baggage at the transfer point and apply to the relevant airline counter for check-in procedures of their connection flight. Passengers can only benefit from through check-in if their flights are all on one ticket.

ADM POLICY GENERAL RULES:

Minimum ADM Fee:

Atlasglobal(Ukraine) (Ukraine) may issue ADM for all infractions detected or may set a minimum ADM value according to infraction type and agency. A single ADM may be issued for infractions that occurred within the same period by the same Agency. Minimum  amount  of  one  ADM document  of  any  type,  without administrative fee 50USD.

Service Fee:

Atlasglobal(Ukraine)  may charge a service fee for valid ADM’s. Agencies will be informed about level of service fee and other related rules prior to execution. Service fee will be added to ADM amount.

ADM issue periods:

ADM’s are issued according to deadlines/periods set by IATA. Atlasglobal(Ukraine)  may issue ADMs without any time limit in case of fraud and fraudulent transactions.

Resolution of Disputes:

Agencies can dispute ADMs through the sales reporting channel ie BSPlink etc. If this is not possible, disputes can be made through other ways that Atlasglobal(Ukraine)  will specify. Objections to ADMs that are issued by Atlasglobal(Ukraine)  should not be made later than 14 days. Disputes after this period will be rejected. Detailed information and clarification should be added to the disputes. Objections with missing documents and information will be rejected.

Exchanges/reissues:

Passengers will be accepted as "no-show" if the voluntary exchange/reissues are not processed on the ticket 2 hours before the original flight date and time. In this case, no-show rules will be applied. In case a ticket needs to be exchanged/reissued, first thing to be checked is if the ticket is used or not. Once this checked, fare difference and/or penalties (adult-child-infant etc) should be calculated accordingly. In Exchange / reissue transactions, it is not enough to change the reservation in PNR, ticket must be changed at the same time. Fare difference must be calculated according to the same day exchange rates and in the local currency where the transaction is being made. If a passenger, holding a confirmed ticket does not show up before departure (by the end of check-in time; or else if passenger processed with online check in but didn’t show up by the end of the boarding time), will be considered as no show. Please carefully check related fare rules in case of no show. In all exchanges / reissues carried out in CRS Systems and for which penalty is to be collected, the penalty amount must be collected with CP tax code.

Refunds:

Refund can be made for tickets issued within the last 12 months. During refund for tickets, where reissue/exchange action has been done before, the fare rules of the original ticket will be valid.

Validation of ticket and coupon status must be checked before refund.

Segments must be cancelled 2 hours before the schedule flight date and time. Otherwise, the passenger will be accepted as no show and no-show rules will be applied.

During refund, the calculation of the refundable fee and (if applicable) tax must be made in accordance with the rules.

Along with the penalty amount, no-show penalty should also be charged if applicable. If commission has been paid, these commission amounts should also be charged back.

Refund should always be made according to the most restrictive fare rule. (Before & After Departure: When combining fares the most restrictive cancellation rule apply for the entire pricing unit)

If the refund penalty is higher than the refund amount, the difference is deducted from the tax. If the tax amount is not enough to cover the penalty, the passenger will not be refunded at all.

In case of refund due to death, it is obligatory to keep the death certificate and forward it to the Airline when requested

TAX Refund on Non-refundable Tickets:

In case of non-refundable tickets, according to ticket fare rules, the tax refund must be made directly to the passenger or to the relevant company in case of corporate customers.

ADM shall be issued to the agency who performs abusive refunds or who cannot document or confirm refund to passenger.

Others:

Involuntary Situations/Schedule Changes: When involuntary situations and schedule changes occur, the procedures of related authorities and Atlasglobal(Ukraine)  must be applied. All violations will be subject to ADMs. Involuntary changes should be done within 7 days after the original flight date. Please indicate this on the PNR/Ticket in case if you made a change due to Invol.

Sequential Coupon Usage:

As of June 01, 2017, Atlasglobal(Ukraine)  Airlines will apply “sequential coupon usage” on its international flights. Sequential coupon usage will be applied for tickets consisting of only international flights. Tickets comprising only domestic and/or Cyprus (Ercan) flights will be considered outside of this practice

. Restrictions will apply for “open ticket” procedures (issueing an open ticket or changing a ticket into open ticket)

. Passengers will only be accepted on the flight according to the same flight sequence as on the ticket

. In case a passenger fails to use a flight of a ticket, the passenger will be considered as No-show on the respective flight and no-show rules will apply consequently
