Info

We are pleased to inform that the 125th Conference held in Dubai, UAE on March 12 – 16, 2022, was a success; more than 270 delegates attended the event in person, while more than 120 delegates joined virtually due to some still-ongoing Covid-19 related travel restrictions.
IATP thanks once again Emirates Airline for the support, as well as all the Silver and Bronze Sponsors for their contribution to this fruitful conference.

Both onsite and remote participants had the opportunity not only to review the status of ongoing projects, such as the Engines Pooling and the Third-Party Pooling, but also to discuss the latest issues affecting their fleet operations, such as the recognition of EASA-issued Part 145 certificate following “Brexit”, and the outcome of the Engineering & Maintenance Technical Committee (EM.TEC).
The “Sustainability – Travelers for the Future” session, conducted by Scandinavian Airline Systems, in collaboration with both Airbus and Boeing, was highly appreciated.

The participants scheduled more than 1500 in-person and virtual meetings to discuss and finalize terms and conditions for pooling agreements regarding spare parts, aircraft recovery equipment, and line maintenance support for the forthcoming season.

During the 125th Conference, IATP warmly welcomed DHL Air UK Ltd and Jazeera Airways as new Airline Members.


Upcoming Events


The next IATP Conference will take place on October 8 – 12, 2022 in Lisbon, Portugal, and will be supported by TAP Portugal. We look forward to meeting you in Lisbon!
