The Federal Aviation Administration is pleased to have the International Air Transport Association (IATA) join us again this year as the international sponsor of the 6th Annual FAA International Aviation Safety Forum.

IATA's mission to represent, lead, and serve the international airline industry is the prime vehicle for inter-airline cooperation in promoting safe, reliable, secure, and economical air services — for the benefit of the world's consumers.

IATA assists the international airline industry in:

  • Improving the understanding of the industry among decision makers and increases awareness of the benefits that aviation brings to national and global economies;
  • Assisting airlines by simplifying processes and increasing passenger convenience while reducing costs and improving efficiency;
  • Ensuring that people and goods can move around the global airline network as easily as if they were on a single airline in a single country

IATA's number one priority is safety.
