Commercial Fuel Working Group (CFWG)
Reporting to the IATA Financial Committee, the Commercial Fuel Working Group (CFWG) provides oversight and direction to further the interests of IATA member airlines in all commercial aspects of aviation fuel. Standing objectives of the CFWG include ensuring reliable fuel supply at international airports, eliminating unacceptable duties, fees and taxes, promoting open access to fuel infrastructure and competitive jet fuel markets at airports, as well as market-based pricing for fuel and related services. The CFWG also assists IATA with the content and presentation of the bi-annual IATA Aviation Fuel Forums.
The CFWG comprises a Chair and eight members from IATA member airlines, representing specific geographic regions to provide global coverage. Panel members are proposed by the IATA member airlines and appointed by the IATA Director General & CEO, following a review by the IATA Financial Committee. The CFWG’s work on the IATA Aviation Fuel Forum is supported by the Fuel Suppliers Advisory Panel, comprising ten representatives from companies participating in the IATA Strategic Partnership Program.
Commercial Fuel Working Group meetings
The CFWG meets several times a year, two of the meetings coinciding with the IATA Aviation Fuel Forum.
