Need Help?

Technical fuel operations encompass a wide range of safety and quality challenges for airlines: fuel contamination, fuel storage and distribution, fuel disruptions, compliance with technical standards, etc. 

To support the airline industry, IATA collaborates with fuel experts and suppliers, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM), standard and regulatory bodies such as ASTM, JIG, A4A, FAA and EASA to develop best practices aligned with fuel specification worldwide. IATA also campaigns to develop Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) to contribute to the reduction of aviation emissions.
