The International Airlines Technical Pool (IATP) is a convention of airlines made up of over 100 member airlines. In the spirit of co-operation, members of the aviation industry gather twice yearly to discuss sharing of resources, reducing costs, while improving operating efficiency. Under its auspices, members share aircraft recovery kits, aircraft parts and tooling, ground handling equipment and manpower/facilities.
The membership has grown to boast 300 delegates around the world, making it a diverse and multi-cultural community. There are no boundaries and every member is encouraged to bring forward their ideas, suggestions and opinions without any political prejudice. In the spirit of a "global village" environment, IATP promotes goodwill towards all its members, explores new directions within the frame of the mission of IATP and respects the interest of all member airlines.
Within its 59 year history promoting unparalleled safety in the skies, this association has not only contributed immensely to the aviation industry as we know it today, but has also forged strong bonds between airlines around the world. Competing airlines are united in the technical field. This bond, which began in 1948, was originally based solely on a gentlemen's agreement. With the dawn of the 21st Century propelling IATP forward, its mission to provide excellent technical performance in aircraft operations is unmatched due to the high degree of mutual assistance from all member airlines.
IATP governance is assured by a Board of Directors.
The IATP is a convention of Airlines sharing Technical Resources to generate economic savings and support on time dispatch reliability and operational safety.

IATP Pionairs - Contacts
Many of the people who have enjoyed the association and friendship with colleagues through the IATP have wanted to have a way of continuing these contacts even after their active participation in the IATP business ceases. For this purpose, the IATP PIONAIRS Association was founded in 1984 at the 50th IATP Conference held in Mainz, Germany. The PIONAIRS Association seeks to preserve those friendships which have developed through the IATP across national boundaries and to foster continued contact among those who have served the IATP in the past and between them and the current IATP body.
2. Name of the PIONAIRS Association
The PIONAIRS Association shall be entitled
"The PIONAIRS Association of the International Airlines Technical Pool (IATP-PA)”.

We are pleased to inform that the 121st Conference held in Nashville (TN) on February 29 – March 4, 2020, was a success; more than 300 delegates attended the event. IATP thanks once again the four conference main sponsoring companies – Aviation Concepts, Global Airtech, Illuminair Support Corp., and Safe Fuel Systems – and all the other Silver and Bronze Sponsors for their contribution to this fruitful conference.
During the five conference days, the airline members, the associate members and the authorized external suppliers scheduled more than 1,400 appointments in order to discuss and finalize terms and conditions for pooling agreements regarding spares parts, aircraft recovery equipment and line maintenance support for the forthcoming season. The conference enabled IATP Airline Members to review all technical topics regarding the air transport operations, and to receive an update concerning the state-of-the-art Boeing aircraft type being introduced, the B777X.
Two Airlines were accepted as new Members at the 121st Conference: we warmly welcome GOL Linhas Aereas (G3) and Starlux Airlines (JX). Altitude Global and Delta Material Services also joined the Organization as Associate Members in Nashville.
The IATP team is already working to organize another successful Conference on October 10 – 14, 2020 in Copenhagen, Denmark. We look forward to seeing you there!
