Testimonial

Nico Martiniello, Airline Marketing Manager – ATR
I recently attended the Airlines leading practice and cost reduction strategies training course at IATA in Geneva - it has completely met my expectations and has confirmed the high level of training offered by IATA. This is the fourth course I have attended at IATA. I have found that courses offered through the training catalog answer my training needs, and I was sure that IATA instructors (always very passionate and professional) would be able to keep alive my interest and answer my questions. In addition the week spent on the IATA training course was a great opportunity to meet and to exchange ideas with other professionals coming from different cultures.
