Operations & Infrastructure


IATA identifies and develops operational solutions for all areas affecting aircrafts and airlines, either on ground or in flight.

The goal is to:

  • Optimize engineering and maintenance measures to improve safety, reliability and productivity
  • Promote the global harmonization of aircraft equipment 
  • Identify reduction opportunities in fuel consumption and carbon emissions
  • Improve safety and operational efficiency in ground operations 
  • Meet demand of aviation professionals and the need to improve safety, quality and efficiency of training
  • Identify and mitigate operational cost issues
  • Achieve paperless aircraft operations


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

We are seeking to establish and maintain a global infrastructure strategy that addresses high level, long-term planning and near-term issues, as well as harmonized regional development. Working globally with airlines and industry partners promotes cost effective and environmentally responsible improvements.
