What is IATA?
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is the professional association of the world’s airlines, founded in 1945.
IATA (International Air Transport Association) develops, maintains and updates the IATA Regulations, a set of international regulations and standards applicable to the transport of dangerous goods by air, which are accepted by most airlines and air cargo agents worldwide.
The IATA code covers a wide range of aspects related to the transport of dangerous goods, including classification, packaging, labelling, documentation, training and air transport safety.
These regulations are important to ensure the safe transport of dangerous goods and to comply with international regulations.
IATA’s main objective is to promote cooperation to ensure the safety, security and reliability of air services.
They are also the architects of the IATA codes, the three-digit airport codes that define and identify every airport in the world and are used internationally to simplify the registration of air operations.
In summary, we can list the following objectives of the International Air Transport Association (IATA):
- To promote the development and growth of international air transport.
- To promote and ensure cooperation between the various international air transport companies.
- To strengthen safety and security in all areas of air transport.
- Creation of standards and formulations for international air traffic.
