World Association of Air Transport
|World Association of Air Transport|
| Alternate Name(s):|
|Organization with Headquarters in Viljanni|
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.
WAAT was founded in 1932 as International Air Transport (IAT) to coordinate air transport between different airlines. In 1948 the organization moved its headquarters from Bad Stanncatt in Mergany to Viljanni.
The World Association of Air Transport's headquarters are located in Ulethaani, a central district of Viljanni. The main building from 1927 is used since 1948 by the WAAT and was remodeled and supplemented by a tower building in 1996.
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 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:
