Airports & IATA Publications Services Training Workgroups

IATA collaborates with airports worldwide to ensure infrastructure development and charges adhere to established principles. We look forward to working with you to establish long-term strategies and to address near-term issues.  

Airport Slots

Security: Smart Security

IATA supports the development and management of  standards for the slot allocation process in consultation with airport coordinators and airlines. The standards are published in the IATA Worldwide Slot Guidelines

Airport codes

Airports are eligible for an IATA code when requested by an airline or a computer reservation system.

Towards user-friendly airports

Airport planning and infrastructure development must support safe, functional, capacity-optimized and user-friendly airports.
See what IATA has in place to support airport development.

Airport Charges

Commitment to greater efficiency from airports and all industry partners will secure a sustainable future for aviation. IATA works with airports to drive cost-efficiency improvements. More on IATA Charges & Economic Regulation activities


The Smart Security is IATA's vision for a passenger screening system that facilitates the passenger journey, while offering airports greater operational efficiencies and increased revenue opportunities. More on the Smart Security

Ground Handling Safety

The IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) is an essential factor for safety on the ground, benefiting airports too. See on the ISAGO registry which ground handlers are ISAGO-certified for your airport.
