Montreal – For more than 70 years, IFALPA has been a trusted voice with aviation industry stakeholders including ICAO, State Regulators, IATA, Governments, and Airline Operators. Known for our expertise on technical, safety, and security matters our Member Associations represent more than 100,000 pilots who fly for airlines on all five continents.
IFALPA and our Member Associations are skilled in all matters related to the airline business, including difficult restructuring and industry resets. We know that navigating these complex issues requires unity. Through strong relationships with industry stakeholders we have been able to advance all aspects of global aviation, even during the most challenging times.
We are facing an unprecedented challenge to our industry. IFALPA is inviting all aviation stakeholder partners to collaborate actively to maintain the safety and security of our system and ensure the continued economic stability of our industry.
IFALPA has assembled a COVID-19 Industrial Response Team to provide expertise, resources, and guidance to manage the unfolding crisis. The Team is made up of professional and pilot representatives from across the globe with decades of experience dealing with airline restructurings.
IFALPA Member Associations and their pilots will be key to providing the stability required by the aviation industry in the short term. Our role in the long term will be equally vital: to partner with all industry stakeholders to ensure a healthy, stable, and profitable industry emerges from this crisis.
