From its creation in Havana in 1945, IATA is rich in stories that are intertwined with the development of the industry that it represents, leads and serves. Today, aviation is woven into the fabric of daily life for many. And this is in no small part owing to collaboration among airlines that IATA has enabled. This abundantly illustrated 128-page book details the history of the association and aviation milestones over seven decades.

Starting with a foreward by Alexandre de Juniac, IATA's seventh Director General & CEO, explore the history and evolution of commercial aviation from the first IATA (1919-1939) to today.
