Air Traffic Management

ATM & IATA Publications Services Training Workgroups

IATA initiatives in air traffic management have been developed in cooperation with the relevant authorities and air navigation service providers. An even closer working relationship will enable the industry to realize significant benefits.

Policy

IATA works relentlessly at the structural and operational level towards the implementation of two major projects aimed at making air traffic management more efficient:

IATA also works with air navigation service providers across the globe to drive cost-efficiency improvements. Find out about our charges & economic regulation activities.

Environment

Air Traffic Management enhancements could improve airlines' fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions up to 12%.

IATA therefore calls upon governments, airports and air navigation service providers to implement the necessary infrastructure improvements.

Towards flexible routings

We are working with key stakeholders to introduce more flexible routings. This initiative, called iFLEX, will bring significant reduction in flight time on long haul, resulting in reduced fuel burn and emissions, in addition to obvious commercial benefits. iFLEX is currently on trial on a few routes. Find  out how to join the iFLEX initiative.

What's New
PRESS RELEASE | Posted Aug 06, 2015
IATA announced global passenger traffic results for June showing a 5.7% increase in demand compared to June 2014. This was a slowdown compared to the 6.9% year-over-year growth recorded in May, in part owing to the timing of Ramadan, which depressed travel demand in the Middle East.
PRESS RELEASE | Posted Aug 05, 2015
IATA released data for global air freight markets showing a slowdown in growth for air cargo demand in June. FTK rose just 1.2% compared to a year ago. This is consistent with falling trade activity and weaker than expected global growth.
