IATA: Greater Cooperation Needed Between Government and Aviation Industry

IATA: Cooperation Between Aviation Industry | Airport Solutions

According to the IATA Director General and CEO, Mr Alexandre de Juniac, the aviation industry needs a greater collaborative relationship with Government, Congress and the Administration if it is to handle the expected increases in passenger traffic over the next 25 years.

Speaking to the International Aviation Club in Washington DC earlier this year, De Juniac stressed that the social and economic benefits the industry brings should be supported not only by legislation, but also by investment in infrastructure. He remarked that the aviation industry contributes over $778 million to the US GDP if you include aviation-supported tourism and supports 6.5 million US jobs, reinforcing the value of the contribution aviation makes to the economy.

If the US aviation industry is to handle predicted rises in passenger numbers over the next two decades, it will need greater cooperation from the Government sector, according to De Juniac.

Strengthening infrastructure

Airport infrastructure will need more support and investment in this area is key. This has been discussed before, and is not new news, but Mr de Juniac stressed that current rumours from Congress hint strongly that there could be more backtracking on the 1978 deregulation that allowed healthy competition to drive down the cost of aviation travel. Competitiveness must remain, according to De Juniac, and further moves in this direction could ultimately harm the industry.

With a collaborative approach to infrastructure improvement and investment, De Juniac believes that expected growth can be accommodated. He added that new airports will also be needed if the predicted addition of 500 million passengers by 2037 and noted that no major airport developments had been addressed for nearly 25 years.

A realistic solution to strengthening infrastructure without significant investment currently exists in the form of multi-use applications that can integrate with current, existing systems and operational platforms. As airports of all sizes begin to realise the benefits of incorporating the latest applications and products, scalability and flexibility can be achieved like never before.
