Multilateral Interline System
- May 11, 2016 -
No single airline, no matter the size, can serve every point in the world. This is why the multilateral interline system benefits all parties:
Airlines are able to reach markets to which they do not operate directly and generate extra revenue in the process. Market destinations can be added quickly and efficiently.
Consumers appreciate more choices and greater convenience, with worldwide travel options with one ticket, in one currency, and in one transaction with their luggage checked all the way through.
But the immunity from competition laws under which the system was operating is being scaled back in many parts of the world.
Establishing a new, convenient multilateral interline system that meets the competition concerns is crucial to continue offering passengers with the flexibility and convenience of interlining, and essential to the viability of air transport.
