Are you a travel agent requiring IATA accreditation?
Two programs are available for travel professionals seeking IATA accreditation.
Full IATA accreditation for travel agents
Full accreditation authorizes travel agents to sell international and/or domestic tickets on behalf of IATA member airlines. It also allows access to IATA’s Billing and Settlement Plan (BSP), an efficient interface for invoicing and payment between the agent, airlines and transport providers.
