IATA takes a leadership role in influencing airport and airspace planning and development projects worldwide to meet airline requirements for safety, efficiency and functionality.
IATA seeks to establish and maintain a global plan that addresses high level, long-term strategy and near-term issues, as well as harmonized regional development.
Air Traffic Management
IATA works globally with airlines, other organizations, airport and air navigation service providers, and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to promote cost effective environmentally responsible improvements to the global Air Traffic Management environment.
We play an active role in making sure we have a responsible aviation industry. By working closely with our airline members, we have developed best practices that will benefit everybody and that will help reduce aircraft noise and emissions.
For IATA, it is essential that airport planning and infrastructure development supports safe, functional, capacity balanced and user-friendly airports. Working closely with airport authorities, IATA seeks to ensure that they provide flexible facilities that meet airline requirements in a cost-effective manner.
