20-22 October 2010


What is uatp

What is UATP?

  • Low cost payment network privately owned by 21 airlines worldwide

  • Founded in 1936 (the world’s first charge card)

  • UATP is accepted as a valid form of payment by more than 260 Merchant airlines and thousands of travel agencies

  • Annual UATP sales (2009) totaled approximately USD 9 billion

  • Processed through GDSs & directly like other payment solutions (e.g., VISA)

  • One of the four ICH settlement classes


Participants in the uatp network

Participants in the UATP Network

  • Issuers – are the airlines who issue their own UATP card and have the direct relationship with the Corporate Subscribers

  • Merchants – are the entities who accept the UATP card as a form of payment through distribution channels

  • Corporate Subscribers – are the cardholders of the UATP card. UATP accounts are held by thousands of major corporations worldwide

  • UATP – is the organization which provides the infrastructure and support to permit the program to operate and grow


Background

Background

  • In 2006, UATP and IATA worked together to establish the ATCAN-ICH link

  • Created an automated means for participants to have UATP transactions submitted for settlement via ICH

  • UATP Members could opt-out of the link

  • Currently supporting 140 Merchants


Sis and uatp

SIS and UATP

  • In late 2009, UATP began working with IATA to implement SIS as a replacement to the ATCAN-ICH link

  • UATP established a working group to address SIS (UATP WG)

  • Working group reports to full membership biannually


Master invoice

Master Invoice

  • Many UATP Members expressed concern over the potential for significant invoice fees under SIS

  • UATP WG and IATA worked together to create a master invoice

  • Master invoice aggregates multiple ATCAN invoices and adjustments/chargebacksto create a single SIS invoice per settlement period for each Merchant/Issuer pairing

  • Reduces costs to UATP Members
