    Within minutes of the new IATA resolution regarding automated baggage rules coming into effect on 1 April 2011, SITA went live with its automated baggage fees pricing solution.

    24 airlines, including Asiana, Cathay Pacific / Dragonair, China Airlines, EVA Airways, Garuda, Transaero and Singapore Airlines, are now using SITA’s Horizon Autobag in line with IATA Resolution 302.

    The new resolution redefines how baggage rules are applied on a given itinerary, including interline journeys. Its adoption recognizes the need for change as more and more airlines were defining their own baggage allowances and charges depending on the number of bags checked, class of travel, frequent flyer status and routings.

    Participating airlines now electronically file their baggage allowance policies and charges to a centralized database to support consistent pricing across channels and pricing systems.
