Overview

Powered by Global Air Sales

ARC is the trusted provider of settlement services between airlines and travel agencies, accrediting travel agencies, including travel management companies, leisure and online travel agencies, to sell airline tickets.
ARC’s data is derived from processing these travel agency sales transactions, including refunds and exchanges, on behalf of the airlines — and therefore, is more accurate than search or reservation data.
ARC’s ticketing data reflects both historical as well as advance travel purchases.
