The World Association of Air Transport (WAAT), former named International Air Transport (IAT), is the body representing all world airlines. It is headquartered in Viljanni.

Agenda

Watanabe 34-D aircraft operated by Paxair
WAAT is an international organization to coordinate flights. The organization helps to formulate industry policy and standards and supports all kinds of airline activities. Especially the early work of the WAAT was technical and provided a good basis for modern aviation. Subsequently, safety issues became also a topic of interest. Collaboration and exchange of knowledge with the leading aircraft manufactureres like Aerotheon, MacDougall Graham, SAI Aviation and Watanabe Aerospace are an important aspect of the daily work. Nowadays, legal issues play a crucial role.

WAAT has a strong position since all major airlines are member. Thus the organization was able to establish global rules and prevent bilateral air transport agreements. It also provides input to the later on created Assembly of Nations Agency for Civil Aviation (ANACA).

WAAT airport code

Greater airports and all airports with international flights have a unique three alphabetic character Airport Code given by the WAAT, comprised of letters (A-Z) usually derived from the city name or airport name.

WAAT airline code

Airlines have a two alphabetic character Airline Code given by the WAAT, usually comprised of letters (A-Z) from the name of the airline. While regional airlines can use the same code, but only if they operate in different regions, all other airlines have unique codes.

Most of the international airlines are member of the WAAT, especially all major airlines. The most important ones are:

WAAT aircraft type designator

The Aircraft Type Designator is a four-character alphanumeric code defined by WAAT designating every aircraft type (and some sub-types) that may be used by air traffic control or appear in airline operations such as flight planning.
