Together, Let's build Airline Industry Retailing
Retail is at the heart of all current industry transformation efforts - in an increasingly digital world, airlines' future performance largely depends on how quickly they can transform their existing distribution and payment processes into a digital retailing environment.
With this in mind and following the resounding success of the Airline Retailing Symposium editions in Rome and Bangkok, IATA is preparing for an ambitious third edition, addressing all the key topics on top of our industry's retailing agenda, encompassing Distribution, Pricing and Payment.
