AFTA’s Global Advocacy work

 AFTA CEO Dean Long this week attended the global WTAAA meeting in Seoul, Korea.
AFTA is proud to be a founding member of the World Travel Agent Association Alliance (WTAAA), the primary conduit for all IATA and agency matters globally, in 2008. The WTAAA represents 11 regional markets across the globe, with regional and direct member associations in 67 countries worldwide.
Quotes from Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) CEO Dean Long:
“As we enter a new recovery phase locally, the work we do globally to shape the international framework is critical especially given so many of the local issues in each market are born from global decisions."
“Many of the regulations that are implemented in Australia are set globally and they do have a direct impact on Australian consumers and trade.”
“This weekend I was in Korea with AFTA’s colleagues from NZ, USA, Canada, South America, Korea, South Africa and Europe as we reviewed the global outcomes of the latest decisions by IATA. While each market has a local consultative body, most final decisions that determine how we settle and pay airlines and the standards around NDC are made globally."
“At this meeting, among the issues considered, we signed off on a vital project relating to our international requirements for the future of NDC. This will ensure our members’ clients can access the products and services they wish to purchase through our members.”
