Government Policy Makers

Governments, Policy Makers & IATA Services Training Workgroups

IATA works with governments, ICAO and other relevant authorities to help define the correct regulatory framework for the industry.

Policy

Setting the standards

IATA works with regulators towards a  safe, secure and sustainable air transport industry. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is an important stakeholder. The current policy topics include:

  • Benefits of Aviation
  • Airport Slots
  • Infrastructure Issues
  • Charges & Economic Regulation and Taxation
  • Fuel
  • Airline Distribution
  • Environment

Benefits of Aviation

Aviation contributes to the overall economic growth of nations.

We have partnered with Oxford Economics to produce detailed economic studies on the benefits of aviation for consumers, public finances and the global economy. Some 60 country reports are already available: www.benefitsofaviation.aero

...air cargo makes it happen

Value of Air Cargo



 

 

In cooperation with industry stakeholders, we strive to continuously improve aviation standards. These initiatives in particular have or will have a major impact on air transport:

Passenger security: Smart Security

The Smart Security (formerly Checkpoint of the Future) is our vision for more effective and sustainable passenger screening. For governments, it will offer improved ability to counter threats, ability to focus resources where risk is greatest, and leverage investment made on existing technologies. Strong support has been expressed by major international regulators. More on the Smart Security

Cargo security

Regulators are an essential partner in strengthening further the security of  air cargo, while ensuring the vital flow of commerce. See where we are at on these critical projects:

Secure Freight and Cargo Customs & Facilitation

Cargo consignment facilitation declaration

Safety

Safety is IATA's number 1 priority. The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) program, now obligatory for all IATA members is a critical factore in airline safety.
