A large proportion of trips require the services of two or more airlines in order for the passenger to complete a single journey. The interline system is a global network of international air transport services linking most cities with scheduled air services.
It provides a travel option that enables:
Fully flexible fares
Last minute change/routings on other airlines
A single ticket (fare) for a journey using two or more carriers
Baggage transfer at connecting points
These Flex Fares are new multilateral interline fares derived from published carrier fares. The concept is simple: for a given market, a base fare is calculated using available carrier fares in the market, and an interline premium is added which reflects the flexibility in an IATA fare.
Fares are driven by and linked to market prices
Consumers enjoy the flexibility of interlining and conditions
