ALTA / IATA Safety Team


With safety being ALTA’s top priority, the ALTA / IATA Safety Team helps to promote the exchange of information, data and statistics aimed at identifying the main operative risks in the region and to seek measure to mitigate them, as well as to exchange best practices between operators and authorities to improve safety ratings in the region. The main project led by this committee are:

  • AITSP Program, powered by IATA’s FDX system. This information has been used for the analysis and development of safety risk mitigation strategies through the Pan American Regional Aviation Safety Group (PASG-PA).
  • Industry Representative in the Pan American Regional Group of Aviation Safety, where projects are developed at regional level to mitigate the main areas of risk
  • Promote the creation of National Safety Groups (NSGs) at the country level by implementing the strategies and experiences gained in RASG-PA
