Datalex meets another industry deadline ahead of time

July 27, 2012

Datalex has released a TDP enhancement to comply with the United States Department of Transportation (US DOT) provisions of Consumer Rule II pertaining to the disclosure and assessment of baggage fees, ahead of 24th July 2012 deadline.

The mandate applies to all journeys where travel is to, from or within the U.S. and states the baggage allowances and charges of the first marketing carrier apply throughout the journey. The DOT rules require the disclosure of baggage allowances and charges at the time of fare quotation, and must be added to electronic tickets and included in email itinerary confirmations. For international itineraries, airlines can use the IATA Most Significant Carrier (MSC) standard for deciding which carrier’s rules should apply.
