IATA Director General and CEO Tony Tyler, as quoted in IATA's Airlines International, stated (01-Aug-2011) aviation must engage governments much more compellingly, not just on climate change but on a host of other issues. "Fighting excessive taxation and misregulation, breaking bottlenecks with infrastructure improvements, securing the industry without hassling our passengers and ensuring the level playing field and commercial freedoms that airlines need to do business, to name just a few," Mr Tyler said. He also noted that airlines face many challenges, including safety and the constant struggle to keep revenues ahead of costs.
