Fare Rules are the rules that must be met in order to apply the fare. Fare Rules may contain conditions for booking and exchanging a ticket, categories of passengers, any kind of priveleges, travel dates, the possibility of transit stops and other features.


Fare Rules are set by the carrier for special fares and are valid at the start of the carriage. These standards can not contradict the Standard Fare Rules formed by the TCH on the basis of the provisions of the Air Code and regulatory documents of the Ministry of Transport of Russia.

Fare Rules may contain:

  • Categories of passengers who receive the right to use the fare. For example, passengers of a certain age group (youth or pensioners), people with disabilities, deputies, groups or families, etc.
  • Restrictions on the fare use by time, which may be associated with the season, departure time, days of the week, etc.
  • Special features of the route. There can be an agreement of application of the fare to a certain route, the maximum or minimum time spent at the destination, the possibility of transfers, etc.
  • Rules for ticket exchange and refund. It is everything related to the procedures of ticket exchange and refund indicating penalties in case of violation of the carrier’s terms.
  • Booking and payment terms. These conditions may relate to the time of ticketing, depending on the date of departure (in case of advance booking) or the purchase of a ticket at the same time as booking.

Fare Rules in Websky

Data of fare rules can be used in Websky system when setting a time limit - maximum time and date of ticket purchase.

Timelimit can be assigned two ways:

  1. Automatic time limit (using data from the airline's Timelimit Rules);
  2. Using the given fare rules (category 5), i.e. according to the estimates.

Right after booking, the time limit is automatically set in accordance with the data in the "Airline Time-Limit Rules". If there is an attribute of time limit set for an airline by estimate (category 5, according to fare rules), then, if the ticket is not to be issued right away, then, to complete a PNR request, you need to reset the timelimit in acordance with the fare rule data. Otherwise the system will respond that you needto set timelimit by estimate (timelimit request).
