Overview

Travelport will fully process and display any new IATA Alpha/Numeric tax codes and output the applicable taxes including any with a new Alpha/Numeric code in the tax line and in the XT tax breakdown, if applicable, in all pricing/fare quote, shopping and Travelport Rapid Reprice™ responses. Travelport will not be prepared to accept ANY Numeric/Alpha tax codes at this time including those that individual carriers have reserved for their own use. There is no scheduled date for Travelport to expand to accept Numeric/Alpha or Numeric/Numeric tax codes.
New Alpha/Numeric tax codes will also be reflected on Travelport issued tickets as well as Filed Fares, Stored Fare Quotes, and Ticketing Records. For customers who parse through data, Alpha/Numeric tax codes may have an impact because the tax value is also numeric.

Customer Benefit

Acceptance and processing of any new IATA Alpha/Numeric tax codes. Customers who currently have access to the test system will be able to test their internal systems for acceptance and processing of Alpha/Numeric tax codes using the fictitious Alpha/Numeric tax codes.
