-ARC board approves updated agent reporting agreement.
U.S. travel industry network ARC said that the company's board of directors voted to approve revisions made to the ARC Agent Reporting Agreement. The ARA is the three-party contract between a travel agency, ARC, and ARC participating carriers, defining the requirements to receive and maintain ARC accreditation.
The board endorsed the revised ARA, which will go into effect July 2013, during its semi-annual meeting in Chicago. This effective date will allow all parties sufficient time to upgrade systems and business processes to properly support the changes found in the revised ARA.
The Joint advisory board for the Agent Reporting Agreement (JAB-ARA), made up of the airlines and travel agency groups involved in developing the revised ARA, approved the revisions last month.
ARC enables commerce among travel agencies, airlines, and travel suppliers, and offers them secure and accurate financial settlement services. About 16,000 travel agencies and 190 airlines make up the ARC network.
