IATA’s priorities for 2021 were defined by the IATA Board of Governors during their March session.
Key performance targets for 2021
Reducing the 5-year all accident rate (2016-2020 compared to 2017-2021).
Securing government relief measures for airlines that generate cash or reduce costs and taxes by up to US$75-95 billion. US$50 billion of this should be achieved in the first half of 2021.
Working with governments to complete roadmaps to reopen borders to travel for the top 33 passenger markets. These represent 82% of passengers globally. 60% of these markets should be open without quarantine measures.
Achieving 2.2M tons of CO2 offset through the IATA Aviation Carbon Exchange.
