IATA new CEO: Speed, partnerships and policies that support aviation are on my mind

IATA DG and CEO Alexandre de Juniac published (01-Sep-2016) his first blog post on assuming his duties at the association. Mr de Juniac said he has arrived at IATA "with a few ideas which I would like to share": 

  • Mr de Juniac stated he values speed, and believes the key to success in a rapidly changing world is "being able to respond quickly". His experience in the air transport industry has been that "we often struggle with speed, and as a result, innovation can suffer". Mr de Juniac said he believes IATA is uniquely positioned to help the industry respond to change and to innovate in a timelier manner and he wants to "pick up the pace of our industry leadership";
  • Mr de Juniac stated that his predecessor, Tony Tyler, "did a great job of strengthening IATA’s partnerships across the value chain" and that "working in partnership is a winning formula that I intend to keep nurturing";
  • Mr de Juniac noted the aviation industry is "the business of freedom", allowing us to efficiently and quickly move around our planet. As the leader of aviation's global industry advocate, Mr de Juniac stated he "wants to make sure that government policies support the business of freedom" and when industry success is threatened, "it’s IATA’s job to rally our partners and quickly get things back on track".
