The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is the trade association for the world’s airlines, representing some
290 airlines or 82% of total air traffic. We support many areas of aviation activity and help formulate industry policy on critical aviation issues.
IATA is led by Alexandre de Juniac, Director General & CEO since September 2016.
A guiding concept of IATA’s structure is “Global Development, Regional Delivery”, where the Head Office divisions drive the development of global standards, systems and advocacy positions, while the regional and country offices are responsible for implementation.

IATA's senior management, formed of regional and subject matter experts, sets the strategic direction of IATA under the leadership of IATA's Director General & CEO. See
