Internships at IATA

Give Wings to Your Dreams

IATA Internships incorporate talented, innovative and motivated individuals, fresh from academic training, into the IATA working environment. Each intern has significant opportunities to demonstrate skills as well as  to learn and develop in an international business environment.

Internships at IATA are available in two programs:

  • International Graduate Internship Program (IGIP) - full-time opportunity for recent university graduates

 Internships

IATA strives to attract the very best and brightest recent graduates from around the world. These interns are exposed to the unique challenges faced by IATA and contribute to our work in supporting our members and our industry by performing junior professional tasks.
