The International Airlines Technical Pool (IATP) is a convention of airlines made up of over 100 Member Airlines, 40 “Guest” Airlines, and around 35 service providers (called Associate Members). 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, Line Maintenance services and ground handling equipment.
The membership has grown to boast 400 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 its mission, and respects the interest of all member airlines.
Within its 75-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 while the day-to-day activities are managed by a Corporate Office. Several Project Groups and Committees have been set up in order to address current industry challenges and maintain the IATP to the highest levels of expertise.
The IATP is a convention of Airlines sharing Technical Resources to generate economic savings and support on time dispatch reliability and operational safety.

To enter Portugal a Schengen Visa would be required, make sure you have the appropriate visa for your stay and take the necessary steps to obtain it in a timely manner.
A Schengen Visa is an authorization issued by one of the Member-States for the purpose of airport transit, transit or an intended short stay in a territory of one or more Member-States, allowing its holder to present him/herself at the external frontier, but does not automatically guarantee his/her respective entrance, which will be decided by the border authorities upon arrival.
The Schengen visa is a short-stay visa for a maximum period of ninety (90) days during any hundred and eighty (180) days period and can be granted for tourism, family visit, business, seasonal work, transit, among others.
A short-stay visa does not necessarily grant the holder the right to enter the Schengen area. At the border (or any control point) the visa holder may have to display the visa or provide additional documentation, including proofing financial means for the duration of the stay and for the return trip.
