Main IATA navigation



IATA takes a leadership role in influencing airport and airspace planning and development projects worldwide to meet airline requirements for safety, efficiency and functionality.

IATA seeks to establish and maintain a global plan that addresses high level, long-term strategy and near-term issues, as well as harmonized regional development.

​Air transport requires access to high-quality infrastructure at competitive cost if it is to fulfill the demand for air travel, which, according to IATA’s 20-year forecast, is set to more than double by 2035. Collaboration with infrastructure partners—especially with airports, air navigation service providers (ANSPs), and fuel suppliers—is crucial.

Fair and cost-efficient airport and ANSP charges are essential to maximize customer service and boost connectivity.
