Fuel Committee

The Fuel committee was set up in 2005 by the airlines to work together in their fuel purchases in the region in order to obtain important economies of scale. Later the ALTA/IATA Fuel Committee was formed and jointly with IATA and each country’s local associations, this committee identifies the structure, cost system and the taxes that are a significant burden for the industry in the region. The next committee meeting is set to take place in Cancun, Mexico at IATA’s Fuel Forum in November 2015.
