Goodbye to IATAN

End of the designation seems likely

It now appears certain IATAN will cease to exist in its current form in the next year to 18 months, as IATA no longer sees the need for a separate subsidiary in the United States. IATA wants to fold the operation into IATA itself and convert the board of directors into an advisory group. If that happens, existing IATAN programs will continue, and it is likely IATAN will oversee all of IATA’s agency ID programs worldwide, said IATA’s Chris Gilbey, chairman of the IATAN board.
