L to R: Members of the World Travel Agents Associations Alliance (WTAAA): Marcelo Oliveira from Brazil (ABAV), Heather Craig-Peddie from Canada (ACTA), Andrew Bowman from New Zealand (TAANZ), Jayson Westbury from Australia (AFTA), and Otto de Vries from South Africa (ASATA)
ACTA was at the meeting table earlier this week, participating in the Passenger Agency Programme Global Joint Council (PAPGJC), an assembly of global travel agency associations, airlines and IATA. The agenda for the full-day meeting allowed for direct travel agency input into:
Travel Agency Commissioner - Area 1 (The Americas and the Caribbean, except USA)
# 110 - 3083 West 4th. Avenue
Vancouver, British Columbia V6K 1R5
Tel.: (604) 742 - 9854
Fax: (604) 742 - 9953
While not all ACTA members are IATA appointed agencies, many member 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.
