Non-Accredited Agencies (RSP)

Effective August 20, 2000 a Reservation Service Provider (RSP) numbering system was made available for agencies that are not accredited by the Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC) but who are actively booking airline seats through a system provider (GDS/CRS). Effective 13DEC2000 the ARC fee to obtain an RSP number has been restructured to an annual fee of 75.00 USD.

DL/KL recognizes that there are agencies who make reservations on behalf of consumers but do not perform ticketing, reporting or settlement functions and are not accredited by ARC or IATA. Currently DL/KL does not receive sufficient point of sale information from the CRS on bookings made by these agencies. DL/KL pays CRS fees for these bookings and the lack of a unique number has resulted in booking fee discrepancies. The RSP numbering system will alleviate the CRS booking fee discrepancies and will allow DL/KL to formalize our business relationship with these agencies that do not have ARC/IATA accreditation.

DL/KL requires that domestic agencies who make reservations on behalf of consumers but are not accredited by Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC) to obtain a Reservation Service Provider (RSP) number from ARC by 01MAR2001. Applications can be found on the ARC web site under www.arccorp.com. Click on "Forms Catalog". The new form number is ARC form 686. DL/KL will allow RSP numbers to be obtained from other industry-approved entities that may be established, provided these entities are cost efficient and effective. Once the RSP number is received from ARC the number must be sent to DL/KL via e-mail at 752ERSP@delta.com. Please include in this e-mail: The agency name, address, RSP number, CRS provider, pseudo city code, home and/or branch ARC/IATA number of all accredited ticketing agency affiliations (if applicable). The agency must notify its CRS provider that it has obtained an RSP number and such number must be included in each booking created through the CRS.

Agents operating in Canada and other non-USA markets on behalf of consumers but are not accredited by International Air Transport Association (IATA) must obtain a Travel Industry Designator Service (TIDS) number from IATA by 01MAR2001. Applications can be found on the IATA web site. Once received, the TIDS number must be sent to DL/KL via e-mail. The e-mail must include: the agency name, address, TIDS number, CRS provider, pseudo city code, home and/or branch ARC/IATA number of all accredited ticketing agency affiliations (if applicable). The agency must notify its CRS provider that it has obtained an RSP number and such number must be included in each booking created through the CRS.
