MINIMUM CONNECTION TIMES STANDARDS EXPLAINED

What are MCTs?

A Minimum Connection Time is the amount of transfer time, agreed in advance between airlines and airport authorities, that is considered sufficient for a passenger to make a connection between an arriving flight and a departing flight. Carriers submit updates to OAG and these are then used by global distribution systems and connection builders. A carrier is responsible for their own MCTs and can be sent a full report of their data on request.

Reviewing your MCTs regularly will ensure that your connections are not affected by changes to your schedule. If you are an existing MCT supplier using the new features may reduce the amount of MCTs you need to maintain making it easier for you to file with ease and regularity. Request a personalised report of your MCTs and OAG will validate updates and contact your partners for concurrence where required.
