Earlier this week, ACTA participated in the Passenger Agency Programme Global Joint Council (PAPGJC), an assembly of global Travel Agency associations, airlines and IATA. The agenda for the two-day meeting allowed for direct Travel Agency input into a number of IATA initiatives including:
While not all members are IATA appointed agencies, many agencies still make air bookings through other distribution channels and consequently, it is essential that ACTA is at the meeting table with IATA's members, the airlines, ensuring that the issues of the agency community are heard and recognized.
ACTA will continue to provide you with updates on these important industry initiatives.
