The Standard Schedules Information Manual (SSIM) is constituted under IATA Passenger Services Conference Recommended Practice 1761b that was declared effective on 01 July 1972.
The Manual is designed to help originators and recipients of schedule information in terms of electronic data processing and conventional manual message procedures. Its use is encouraged for all IATA Member airlines and their business partners as the standard for the exchange of scheduling information throughout the industry.
SSIM is published on a yearly basis in March.
Further information on SSIM, Schedules Information Standards Committee (SISC) and related scheduling matters can be obtained from the IATA Internet site at www.iata.org/sked. All SSIM enquiries are to be forwarded to SSIM@iata.org.
