The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is the trade organization representing some 265 commercial airlines across the world, which comprises approximately 83% of global aviation. IATA’s mission is to represent, lead, and serve the airline industry.

By improving the understanding of the air transport industry among decision makers, IATA increases awareness of the benefits that aviation brings to national and global economies. Advocating for the interests of airlines across the globe, IATA challenges unreasonable rules and charges, holds regulators and governments to account, and strives for sensible regulation.

For more than 70 years, IATA has developed global commercial standards upon which the air transport industry is built. Its aim is to assist airlines by simplifying processes and increasing passenger convenience while reducing costs and improving efficiency.

Finally, IATA helps airlines to operate safely, securely, efficiently, and economically under clearly defined rules. Professional support is provided to all industry stakeholders with a wide range of products and expert services.
