Fast Travel Program

Welcome to the future of travel. More choice and more control for passengers, and lower costs for the industry. Around 75 % of passengers worldwide want more self-service options.

IATA’s Fast Travel Program is providing self-service options in six areas of a passengers’ airport journey - representing annual savings of up to US$ 2.1 billion for the industry. By creating uniform standards and recommended practices, IATA will facilitate industry adoption of these projects – and a better travel experience for the customer.
