What is IATAN Accreditation?
IATAN stands for International Airlines Travel Agent Network. It’s the US arm of the International Air Transport Association which also goes by IATA. Their goal is to support air travel and tourism within the US and abroad. IATAN accreditation allows you to benefit from reduced rate travel from various participating airlines. Examples of participating airlines are Allegiant, British Airways, Iceland Air, and many others. Additionally, the accreditation allows you and your agency access to many other discounts and deals from travel suppliers.
Why should I become accredited?
The benefits of the IATAN program are many. We discussed one of the major benefits above which is discounted travel which can be resold to your clients. However, many other benefits exist. Below is a list of just some of the additional benefits:
