"For AccesRail, the IATA Strategic Partnership has been of great use in helping us to understand and adapt to airline industry standards. This, in turn, has aided us significantly in developing strong ties with the airline world. As a result, our railway partners now have the ability to interline or code share with airlines in a seamless fashion from sales to settlement following all IATA industry standard rules. Without IATA, we would not have become the ‘airline on rail tracks’ that we are now."
Denis Grenier, VP Business Development
"Being a Strategic Partner in IATA’s global safety initiatives is a key component of Bombardier Aerospace’s commitment to product safety. Participating as a Strategic Partner in this global aviation safety effort has given me access to important safety information that I have then been able to share with my internal collaborators. By leveraging our safety partnership with IATA and actively participating in the Accident Classification Task Force, I have gained a greater understanding of how learning the right lessons from any accident or significant event, regardless of product origin, and applying them can foster improvement beyond just developing a safer product. On a more personal note, as the Air Safety Manager at Bombardier Aerospace, I feel it is important to have a good, broad understanding of the issues facing our industry today, and my involvement in IATA significantly contributes to this. Membership and involvement in IATA is key to the global safety knowledge and product improvement goal. In my opinion, the entire aviation community can benefit from being a member of this Strategic Partnership."

With our mission to help make the market for sustainable jet fuel, the IATA organization, knowledge and network has proven to be invaluable. The two IATA Fuel Forums always represent the highlights on our event calendar as it brings together the entire global jet fuel population. Next to that the great work that the IATA Biofuel team has done in cooperation with ATAG and ICAO has really helped to pave the way for adoption of sustainable jet fuel. SkyNRG is proud to be a strategic partner of IATA. "

"As a strategic partner of IATA, Lufthansa Systems is in close contact with the organization about significant changes in the airline industry such as the introduction of NDC and ONE Order. Thanks to IATA's working groups initiative we benefit from a direct involvement in shaping upcoming industry trends, which enables us to better design changes to our products in collaboration with our airline customers. The working groups are also a substantial facilitator when it comes to the implementation of our NDC and ONE Order pilot project in which we set up a full end-to-end process together with a major airline. NDC and ONE Order messages were used for shopping, ordering, payment and delivery processes. The airline even went live with this solution in a regular scheduled flights environment. Our brand new Dynamic Pricing Solution and our revenue accounting product SIRAX® were also integrated into this pilot.
The close partnership with IATA is very beneficial for Lufthansa Systems and strengthens our position as one of the world's leading providers of IT services in the airline industry."
Andreas Reimann, Head of Finance and Commercial Solutions
"Lyngsoe Systems joined the IATA Strategic Partnership in order to work closely with the industry on methods for improvement of baggage handling. Reducing cost of mishandled baggage and improve efficiency is the goal. Baggage handling being a process involving several parties from check-in to reclaim, all parties in the chain must be involved in the work of optimizing the baggage handling process. To this end, we find the strategic partnership with IATA very helpful, as IATA has the insight and central role needed to obtain successful changes in the industry."
