Chapter Summary

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) was founded in 1945 in Havana, Cuba, as the successor organization to the International Air Traffic Association. Formal membership of IATA is offered only to airlines. IATA's headquarters is located in Montreal, Canada, and its executive offices are in Geneva, Switzerland. IATA maintains an additional 101 offices worldwide. IATA is steered by its Board of Governors, which exercises oversight on behalf of the membership by representing their interests to the Association. IATA is resourced through its membership application fees and annual dues. IATA's role in transnational economic governance has ebbed considerably over the last few decades. While the Association initially combined aspects of technical cooperation and fare-setting cartelization, the latter has proved problematic in a regulatory environment which has come increasingly to favour liberalization and free competition.
