FOREWORD In 1985, the Third Air Transport Conference adopted Recommendation 20 calling on the Council to "study all relevant aspects of computer reservation systems and to formulate recommendations whose purpose would be to avoid abusive use of these systems at the international level, in order to enhance fair competition between airlines and to protect the travelling public". The Council subsequently approved Recommendation 20 and the study called for was undertaken by the Secretariat, with the assistance of a group of experts from Contracting states and international organizations. The principal findings of the study were that computer reservation systems provide substantial benefits to the air transport industry but that there is some abuse of the systems which reguires redress through government action internationally. A comprehensive set of conclusions regarding regulatory guidance was therefore prepared by the Secretariat and subsequently amended in the light of a review by the Air Transport Committee in October 1988. The Council decided in November 1988 that these conclusions should be issued as guidance material prepared by the Secretary General to assist States in the development of policy and regulations to curb possible abusive use of computer reservation systems at the international level. The guidance material is presented in this circular, accompanied by an Appendix giving examples of actual and potential problems regarding computer reservation systems. In addition to providing guidance to States, this circular will serve as a reference for consideration of the subject of computer reservation systems by the 27th Session of the Assembly in September 1989.
