TAL Aviation and IATA Expand Cooperation

10 August, 2017

TAL Aviation is happy to announce its expanded cooperation with IATA with signing of an agreement to facilitate airline customers' connectivity to IATA BSP.

TAL Aviation and IATA have enjoyed a close cooperation since the parties signed an agreement in 2011 with TAL Aviation's appointment as IATA's Global Distributor for Airlines Sales' Products IBCS Consolidator. Over the years, TAL Aviation played an important role in facilitating the joining of additional airlines, worldwide to use the IBCS distribution system - a product that enhanced airline sales and distribution around the world and consequently make more airlines and travel options available to the travelling public.

With IATA's decision to terminate the IBCS product at the end of 2014 and based on the successful cooperation between the organisations, IATA contracted TAL Aviation to continue to provide services on its behalf, offering new and current airline customers the ability to join new BSP territories, supported by TAL Aviation.

Mr Nissim Sagis, VP Commercial for TAL Aviation (seen in above photo) and Mr Jan Pullmann, TAL Aviation's Business Development Manager met with IATA Management at their Montreal headquarters earlier in the month.

Says Nissim Sagis "since becoming IATA's Contractor and developing our Airline Distribution Solutions product, we have assisted in connecting numerous airlines to the IBCS/BSP programmes in multi-territories by providing a one-stop-shop service to airlines seeking to improve their distribution.

Coupled with the expertise of our GSA offices and support from our Head Office teams, I am confident that we will continue to ease the process for the airlines in the future".

The BSP platform is used by most of the commercial airlines operating throughout the world, selling and distributing their seats to travel agencies and eventually to the end consumer.
