UFTAA Says IATA Proposal to Accredit “Sub-Agents” Raises Concerns
Open Jaw

UFTAA members including ARTA Canada have expressed concerns about an IATA proposal to identify and accredit 'sub-agents,' a term believed to include outside sales agents and hosted travel agencies.

While the proposal is in its early stages, UFTAA says IATA/BSP agencies are concerned about the amount of fees which will be collected if, the as yet undefined 'sub-agents', are forced to register with IATA. According to an ARTA Canada press release, UFTAA members have expressed exasperation 'over the escalating fees IATA continues to foist on the travel agency community to finance IATA itself.'
