Appointment of Pieter Elbers to the IATA Board of Governors


Pieter Elbers was appointed to the Board of Governors during the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the International Airlines Transport Association (IATA). This means that KLM will continue to have a significant say in this organisation and therefore continue to play a leading role in the world of international aviation.

IATA unifies 260 airlines from 118 different countries. The organisation focuses on safeguarding and promoting a safe, profitable, sustainable and innovative airline industry. Each year, the industry leaders gather for the AGM, which was held in Dublin this year.

Important topics include the financial situation, standardisation, the innovation of sales channels and climate change.

Earlier this year, communication took place about the recommended appointment of Alexandre de Juniac as Director General & CEO of IATA. During the same IATA meeting, confirmation was also given of the appointment of Alexandre de Juniac to the post of Director General & CEO of IATA.
