KUWAIT AIRWAYS

In an effort to eliminate unnecessary cost and efforts as an agent and to offer our customers the best possible services Kuwait Airways reviews all reservation and ticketing activities.

This document will provide you with a transparent overview of the circumstances under which an ADM will be issued and explain guidelines that Kuwait Airways applies to ensure the proper issuance of tickets, in compliance with tariffs rules, general conditions of carriage and other instructions provided by Kuwait Airways and IATA. Kuwait Airways may, from time to time, provide Travel Service Provider with information deems appropriate for use and/or knowledge in booking and/or ticketing an air transportation on Kuwait Airways and such information will supplement this policy.

The Policy applies to all Travel Service Providers, who maintain the responsibility to ensure all of its employees and contractors, in all of its locations, to comply with this policy, including future updates and amendments. Infractions made to this policy will result in an Agency Debit Memo (ADM) effective 01APR’18, in accordance with IATA Resolution 850m.

General information on ADM Policy

ADMs are issued for tickets, PNR and/or booking related transactions. This includes previously made reservation and ticket usage transactions.

Kuwait Airways raises an ADM for non-compliance with fare, ticketing and reservation rules.

Kuwait Airways issues ADMs within 6 months after the last date of travel. However, in certain cases Kuwait Airways reserves the right to issue an ADM up to 9 months after the last date of travel.

Physical copies of ADMs will not be sent to agent. However, Kuwait Airways shall provide the agent with supporting documents and breakdown upon request.

Kuwait Airways endeavors to provide as much information as possible on an ADM to ensure that reasons of charges are clarified.

Kuwait Airways includes only one ticket on an ADM for better overview giving contact person name with email-address.

Kuwait Airways does not issue an ADM if the total amount is less than USD 5.00, exceptions for this rule are made in certain cases, e.g. for tax corrections or unauthorized provisions. In case of persistent errors, the minimum value shall not be applicable.

Kuwait Airways collects no administrative fee for issuance of each fare, booking related ADMs

Types of ADMs issued by KUWAIT AIRWAYS

ADMs are legitimate accounting tool for use by all BSP airlines and raised to collect amounts or make adjustments to agent transactions in respect of the issuance and use of BSP STDs validated on Kuwait Airways regardless of which carriers are included in the itinerary. Alternative uses of ADMs may also exist: an ADM could also be issued for debits that are not directly related to Traffic documents, e.g. deposits or penalties for group sales, GDS or booking misuses, etc. In general, the scope covers but is not limited to:

1- Under-collection and/or omission on fares, tour package prices, penalties, change fee, sundry charges etc.

2- Under-collection and/or omission of Taxes, government or local authority charges and fees, fuel surcharges etc.

c) Seasonality, flight application violation

d) Weekend surcharges

e) Stopover, transfer surcharges

f) Incorrect RBD. (Mismatch between ticketed and booked RBD)

i) Open or waitlist sectors, where reservation is required

j) Blackout periods violation

k) Sales restriction

l) Incorrect tour code

IMPORTANT
Transportation shall be subject to the fares and charges in effect on the date on which such transportation commences at the place of origin designated on the ticket. A fare and tariff is only guaranteed when the fare was auto-priced by the system and ticket was issued based on confirmed flights and reported in BSP/ARC.
Auto-priced and stored but not ticketed fares are subject to any price change. The ticketed fare remains guaranteed up to a voluntary first flight and/or itinerary change. Any change needs observation of the corresponding fare rule, which also applies to taxes which need to be reassessed in case of reissue/rerouting before departure. Auto-pricing manually manipulated will revoke auto-quote guarantee, however as long as the fare and other amounts are calculated correctly no ADM will be issued.
Dispute Procedure
An agent can dispute an ADM issued by Kuwait Airways via BSPLINK/ ARC Memo Manager within 15 days after issuance in accordance with IATA Resolution 850m with relevant supporting documents and/or justification to dispute.
Kuwait Airways will review disputed ADM within 60 days of receiving it and consequently accepted shall be cancelled and not included in the billing. Any dispute not accepted would be rejected through BSPLINK with justification and would be billed accordingly.
Any ADM disputed by agent and rejected by Kuwait Airways, or dispute raised by the agent after 15 days, shall automatically be processed and agent needs to pay for the ADM through BSPLINK.
“Dispute for tickets issued under GDS fare guarantee should be supported with FCMI and forwarded to GDS provider. Reimbursement for such ADMs deducted through BSPLINK will be made to Travel
Agents directly by their GDS provider.”

NOTICE:
Failure to adhere by the outlined policy and procedure will result in Kuwait Airways taking necessary action as deemed fit, including, but not limited to the following:
1- Using the IATA mechanism to report non-payment
2- Inhibiting/closing out ticketing ability on Kuwait Airways
3- Inhibiting/ closing out access to Kuwait Airways inventory.
Contact
All ADM Disputes should be handled by the country of issuance KU accounts office and each individual ADM will reflect contact and E-mail ID.

Attachment “A”
Ticketing related ADM Matrix
ADM will be raised as per below matrix between applicable fare and ticketed fare or a flat amount plus 15% of the ADM amount as processing fee, which may be raised up to 20% to commensurate cost against agent’s increased violation.
