The Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC) is a company which provides ticket transaction settlement services between airlines and travel agencies (both traditional and online) and the travel management companies that sell their products in the United States. ARC, which is owned by nine major airlines, also offers its transactional data within various industries, including financial. In 2015, ARC processed more than $88 billion[1] worth of transactions for its customers.

History[edit]

ARC was established on September 17, 1984 as a Privately held company following airline deregulation in the United States. The corporation began operations on January 1, 1985 in Washington, D.C., settling financial ticket transactions between airlines and travel agencies. ARC is the successor to the Air Traffic Conference of America, an operating division of Airlines for America, formerly known as the Air Transport Association of America, Inc. (ATA).

ARC's primary function is to support the travel industry by providing transaction settlement between travel suppliers and resellers. The corporation also accredits travel agencies in the United States to sell airline tickets, and provides data information services and analysis based on archived aggregated data.
