ADM Policy

In accordance with the IATA Resolution 850m (Passenger Agency Conference Resolution Manual)

We specify the bmi regional policy in relation to the issuing of ADM’s (Agency Debit Memo’s) to agencies selling bmi regional tickets.

The audit process is to ensure that all fare rules and procedures are adhered to and in the case of any difference, settlement is reached equally for all distribution channels. Fare audit checks are performed on all 480 document issuances, refunds, reissue and revalidation transactions, whether they are fare quoted automatically or manually.

 

ADM Calculations and Minimum ADM value

The minimum ADM value bmi regional will raise is GBP5 or equivalent. In cases of multiple occurrences of underpayments of less than GBP5 or equivalent by the same agent, we reserve the right to recover these underpayments. More than one ADM in relation to the same ticket can be raised in the case of different unrelated reasons.

 

ADM Administration Fee

bmi regional will charge an ADM processing fee to each ADM raised to cover costs. This will be £10 or 15EUR to each ADM.
If the ADM is successfully disputed and not a fault of the agent, we will refund the administration fee.

 

Reasons for bmi regional raising ADM’s

Ticket Issuance

All fares, fare rules and booking rules are subject to audit. This includes, but not limited to this audit control, is the correct application of:

  • Fare and fare conditions
  • Taxes and fuel surcharges
  • Airline surcharges
  • Rebooking fees, recalculation of re-issue / routing
  • Commission (if applicable)
  • Sub class abuse where the class in the GDS is not the same class as the ticket

In addition to the above, we also adopt a policy for churning whereby we will charge an administration fee of £5 per segment.
For inactive segments including duplicate bookings, fictitious names, waitlists, passive bookings, name changes and a general item with other general practices, we will charge an administration fee of £7 per segment.
* Please refer to the booking guidelines tab for further information.
 

Refund Audit

Correct application of all refund rules must be adhered, including, but not limited to this audit control is the correct calculation of:

  • The refunded amount, Fare, taxes and fuel charge
  • The cancellation penalty
  • The refunding of commission amount (if applicable)

 

Credit Card Chargeback

In cases where bmi regional is debited by the credit card acquirer for fraud case, a purchase rejection by the passenger or card holder, or credit card misuse on a ticket issued by the agent,
bmi regional will charge the agent for the cost.
The agent is responsible for checking the validity of the credit card and to ensure the cardholder’s signature is provided as well as ensuring the card is an acceptable form of payment by bmi regional.

bmi regional reserves the right to issue an ADM when abuse usage of a credit card in the name of the agent is used in connection of a sale for any customer of the agent is detected, according to IATA Reso. 890.

 

Form of payment errors on sale or refund

Examples of former payment errors include, but not limited to:

  • Incorrect digits linked to a payment card number that prevents payment
  • Refund to a different form of payment to that of the sale

 

Duplicate usage of tickets

  • Travel
  • Refund
  • Exchange/ Reissue

Where an agent re-issues or refunds a sector that has been flown on, we will raise an ADM if the airline has no funds to cover the used leg.

 

CIP Violation

Any incorrect ticketing on bmi regional ticket stock will be picked up and an ADM raised.

Unreported sales

If a passenger has flown on a ticket issued by an agency, that was not paid to bmi regional, we will raise an ADM.

 

Disputes

According to IATA Resolution 850m (4.50-4.60) travel agents will have a maximum of 15 days to review and dispute an ADM prior to its submission to BSP for processing.
All disputes are to be settled by the Airline within 60 days of receipt. Any dispute concerning an ADM already settled in BSP must be communicated to bmi regional within 50 days of ADM issue date.

 

Contact Information for ADM’s

For further inquiries related to the raising of ADM’s/ACM’s for bmi regional sales, please email the Revenue Accounting team on: agentqueries@flybmi.com

Baggage Information

Cabin Baggage

We understand many passengers wish to travel with cabin baggage only but we would ask you to please remind your customers that there are strict rules regarding the size of their cabin baggage and the items they can carry into the cabin. To ensure a hassle free experience at the airport please ensure your customers are familiar with the following information.
All bmi regional passengers may carry one main piece of cabin baggage on-board weighing up to 12kg, plus one personal item (such as a small handbag, purse, small briefcase, laptop bag, baby-changing bag, etc). Personal items are accepted at bmi regional’s discretion. Cabin baggage dimensions may not exceed 55cm length, 40cm width and 23cm depth (including wheels, handles and side pockets).

Larger pieces of cabin baggage will have DAA tags (‘Deliver At Aircraft side’) attached to them at check-in or the gate. This tag is used for items which won’t fit in our overhead storage in the aircraft cabin. These items are placed in the hold and passengers are then able to collect those items at the aircraft side upon arrival.

Packing your Cabin Baggage

Government and airport authorities enforce strict rules and regulations regarding the carriage of liquids in cabin baggage. Liquids can be taken through airport security check points, but there are restrictions on the quantity of liquids that can be taken through.

Passengers may carry small quantities of liquids, but only within separate containers, with a capacity not greater than 100ml each. These containers must be brought to the airport contained in a single, transparent, re-sealable plastic bag, which itself must not exceed 1 litre in capacity (approximately 20cm x 20cm). The contents of the plastic bag must fit comfortably and the bag must be sealed. Each passenger may carry only one such bag of liquids and the bag must be removed from cabin baggage and placed separately in the bin provided when moving through airport security. Liquids which cannot be placed inside the re-sealable bag must be packed into hold baggage and checked in. The term ‘liquids’ is intended to include items such as:

  • All drinks, including water, soup, syrups, etc.
  • Creams, lotions, oils, perfumes, mascara, etc.
  • Sprays and pressurized containers, including shaving foam and spray deodorants
  • Pastes, including toothpastes
  • Gels, including hair and shower gel
  • Any other solutions and items of similar consistency to the above mentioned items

Where possible, passengers are requested to place all liquid items in hold baggage.

Flight Essentials

Please make sure the following items are packed in following in cabin baggage:

  • Flight tickets and boarding passes
  • Passport and any other important documents
  • Medication
  • Car keys
  • Money
  • Valuable items

We cannot accept liability for any loss or damage to such items placed in hold baggage.

 

Hold Baggage

 

Our inclusive fares provide every passenger with at least 1 hold bag of up to 23kg for no additional charge

Fare Type Sale Classic ClassicFlex Executive
Free Hold Baggage Allowance 1 piece of max 23kg 1 piece of max 23kg 1 piece of max 23kg 2 pieces of max 23kg each
Excess Kg Charges £10/E15 per kilo over free allowance charged at airport

 

We have special arrangements for sporting equipment like skis and surfboards and large musical instruments. In many cases these can be carried as part of a passengers’ free baggage allowance. Please visit our Sports Equipment and other special baggage page for more details

 

Weight Limit for a Single Piece of Baggage

All customers travelling to and from the UK, are not permitted to check in any bag that weighs in excess of 32kg (70lbs).

The maximum weight limit of 32kg for any individual piece of baggage, does not affect the total combined weight of all bags you are entitled to check in. It is instead a safety measure aimed at reducing injuries to baggage handling staff.

 

Restricted Items

The rules and regulations regarding the export, import and carriage of various items can vary across the UK and Europe, these notes are intended as guidance only and passengers are recommended to check local regulations in place at their time of travel with the relevant authorities.

Food and plant products

Food and plant product imports pose serious health risks – both to the public and to the environment. There are strict rules about bringing them to the UK to reduce the risk of pests and diseases entering the country.

Find out more abut the rules on bringing food products to the UK – www.gov.uk/bringing-food-animals-plants-into-uk/food  and www.gov.uk/bringing-food-animals-plants-into-uk/plants

Endangered animals and plants

Passengers  are not allowed to bring internationally protected endangered animals and plants, or products made from them, into the UK unless they have a CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) permit. The illicit trade in animal products is a serious contributory factor in the threat of extinction faced by many endangered species.
For further information please visit www.cites.org/

Firearms

Firearms, ammunition and other weapons, including replica and decommissioned weapons, are clearly NOT allowed in the cabin of the aircraft.

We may accept firearms for carriage in your hold baggage only with advanced notification and with the appropriate licenses and documentation. Under international rules the weight of any ammunition may not exceed 5kg (11lb) per passenger, allowances for more than one passenger may not be combined.

If accepted for travel, firearms will be carried as part of the passengers’ hold baggage allowance with excess baggage fees applied if the combined hold baggage exceeds the passengers’ allowance.

Firearms and other weapons will only be accepted for carriage under the following conditions:

  • Any firearms should be unloaded, that is, free of ammunition
  • They can only be accepted as hold baggage
  • They must be packed in a hard shell container
  • Ammunition must be packed in either its original packaging or in a suitable container which prevents movement between shells or cartridges (i.e. loose ammunition is not permitted). No external labelling to denote the contents is permitted.
  • A firearms label must be attached and signed by the passenger
  • Each firearm must be accompanied by the relevant export/import licenses, firearms certificate and any other official documentation as required at the time of travel.
  • Bookings must be made via our Contact Centre at least 72 hours prior to travel to ensure compliance with government regulations. Please have the following information to hand when you call us:
    • The quantity of firearms
    • The type, make, model and calibre
    • Quantity (in weight) of ammunition

Please note if the trip includes a flight operated by an airline other than bmi regional please ensure you contact them in advance of travel to verify any additional requirements and / or restrictions.

Please ensure your customer arrives at our check-in desks 2 hours prior to their scheduled departure time to ensure sufficient time to process security documentation.

Buggies, Pushchairs and Carry Cots

Carry cots must be stowed in hold of the aircraft; however, under very special circumstances, we may allow for it to be carried in the cabin. The baby must however be removed from the cot during travel.

Christmas crackers are permitted as hold or cabin baggage; however, they must remain in their original, unopened, retail packaging. Restricted to one box per passenger.

Dead Game Birds & Dead Fish

When travelling within the UK & EC, dead game birds and fish may be carried in baggage. Any dead game birds or fish carried in hold baggage must be suitably packed and sealed in such a way that they:

  • Cannot leak and contaminate other baggage or cargo
  • Cause a hygiene risk
  • Cause offensive odours likely to be objectionable to fellow passengers

Fragile Articles

Fragile articles have to be adequately packed to prevent damage.

Electronic Cigarettes

Electronic cigarettes must not be carried in hold baggage to prevent any fire risk from accidental activation. They are permitted for carriage in cabin baggage, along with any spare lithium batteries for the device. The batteries must also be protected from short circuiting when carried.

Important Information

In other currencies, the above charges may fluctuate depending on the exchange rate at the time of calculation.

 

Flights booked with Other Airlines (codeshare flights)

Please be aware that the hand and hold baggage allowance offered by our flight partners may differ from the bmi regional allowances shown on our website. For the specific terms and conditions of bmi regional’s flight partners, or any other airline sold on flybmi.com please contact the relevant airline, or visit their website directly before travelling.

If your customer is travelling on non bmi regional operated (codeshare) flights, or connecting to a codeshare flight, excess baggage charges will apply and are calculated on an individual route sector basis.

 

Connecting Flights & Through Check-In

Only customers on connecting flights with itineraries issued on a single ticket with one booking reference, are entitled to qualify for the through check-in service (subject to minimum connection times). This ruling applies to all connecting flights.

  • bmi regional to bmi regional
  • bmi regional to other carries
  • Codeshare flights

This means that passengers with connecting journeys using separate tickets are not eligible for the facility of the through check-in service, or, the through tagging of baggage service.

Prohibited Hold Baggage Items

There are sets of items that are prohibited from being carried in hold baggage. Customers are asked to remove such items from their baggage. Please see our Prohibited Baggage Items section for more information.

 

Further Information

We ask for co-operation in the screening process, by allowing sufficient time and being prepared before arriving at the airport.

 

 

Booking Guidelines

BMI Regional booking guidelines for travel agents

BMI regional has recently enhanced its revenue Integrity Policies to more efficiently track and monitor booking activity. As with most airlines bmi regional is charged a fee by each GDS for every passenger segment booked. For this reason we would ask you to use the following guidelines. Your compliance will ensure that these fees are not re-charged to your agency and will improve the availability we offer you and all our travelers.

Ticket time limit

How does the BM ticketing time limit policy work?
On creation of new bookings the system will advise you via your GDS of the ticketing time limit deadline, if appropriate. The booking will subsequently be cancelled should a ticket number not be included in the reservation by the specified date. Always ensure that you ticket within the time limit accordingly to the fare rule.

Published Executive Executive Classes. Ticketing permitted up to flight.
Classic Plus Classic – Y class. Ticketing permitted up to flight.
All classes except Y – Booking made greater than 72 hours prior to departure. 72 hours from Reservation or 24 hours before departure, earliest deadline applies.
All classes except Y – Booking made within 24 hours of departure. Ticketing must occur immediately.
Classic All classes except Y – Booking made greater than 72 hours prior to departure. 72 hours from Reservation or 24 hours before departure, earliest deadline applies.
All classes except Y – Booking made within 24 hours of departure. Ticketing must occur immediately.
Sale Sale – Booking made anytime. Ticketing must occur immediately.

Duplicate Bookings

Duplicate bookings should not be made for the same passenger on the same route. These bookings will be identified and automatically cancelled. Similarly bookings made showing an overlapping or non-flyable itinerary will also be identified and cancelled.

Duplicate Ticket Numbers

Ensure that ticket numbers are both valid and not duplicated. Bookings showing previously used ticket numbers will result in cancellation of the booking.

Fictitious Names

Do not hold space under speculative names or NTBA/TBA/TEST etc. These bookings will be identified and cancelled. Additionally please ensure that passenger names are entered in bmi’s preferred format that should show surname, first name and title as shown below.

SMITH/JOHN MR

Waitlists

Do not waitlist in lower classes. These bookings will be detected and subsequently cancelled.

Passive Bookings

Passive bookings (e.g. PK, PL, AK and where no seat is held) should only be used in the following instances and only when it is not possible to perform the process in the live PNR.

  • When ticketing reservations are made directly with BM.
  • When ticketing is on behalf of another agent

Any Passive booking which falls outside of these circumstances will be identified and rejected. Passives made for productivity or administration purposes should be performed using non-billable status.

Name changes

Name changes are not permitted on any bmi regional ticket.

Other General Practices

  • Remove inactive segments UN/UC/HX/NO
  • Regularly work your queues and ensure that all status codes are actioned
  • Ensure any TK (schedule change) message are confirmed changing the status to HK and cancelling any UN, WK, and UC.
  • If your agency uses more than one GDS ensure you always book and ticket from the same GDS
  • Ensure ticketed classes match those booked.

Can cancelled bookings be re-instated?

If a booking has been cancelled incorrectly, or a ticket issued without bmi regional being notified, then we will try to re-instate the booking wherever possible. Please contact bmi regionals team on 0330 333 7998 or 0044 330 333 7998.

Change Fees

Change fees are £50 or €65 per flight, per person.

A change fee is charged when the flight date has been changed and the original ticket has be re-issued. This re-issue must done at the time any changes to the original dates of travel occur. Any delays on re-issuing a ticket may result in an ADM, for example in the case of a ‘no changes after departure’ fare rule.

Points to remember:

  • Change fees do not apply to all fare types
  • When making a change and the same fare is not available, the difference in fare plus the change fee must be paid
  • Change fees are charged per sector, per person

 

Re-issuing a bmi regional ticket

When collecting additional monies from a customer, always reissue the ticket

Add the new sector to the booking then end and retrieve, at this point remove the unwanted sector and end and retrieve again. This will calculate the additional collection amount i.e. difference in fare plus the change fee

If you are collecting an upgrade fee and/or a change fee these can be collected on the reissued ticket and added as an ADC and the change fee as an XP tax.

Oil and gas industry

bmi regional has proven experience in the planning, execution and management of air charter for the oil and gas industry.

The oil and gas industry needs to ship teams of people where they are required day or night. However, crew exchanges are often required in remote areas, so moving oil and gas crew can be challenging if not handled by an experienced team. bmi regional offers a cost-effective, fast and reliable option for delivery of personnel to your locations. Our Embraer aircraft give us the ability to fly into airports and runways that are much closer to your drill site or service location. We tailor your solution to match your needs and can arrange every aspect of the journey from reservations, passenger manifest, check-in arrangements, security or even special baggage requirements.
