IATA and India’s Ministry of Civil Aviation have signed a Memorandum of Understanding aimed at enhancing the skills and knowledge of Indian civil aviation personnel. The MoU is the first step towards a closer partnership on training between IATA and India.

 Under the MoU, civil aviation officials will be provided with the latest in aviation information at the IATA Training Development Institute training centres worldwide. Officials attending these programs will also benefit from the networking opportunities with their counterparts from around the world.

The training needs of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation will also be addressed though customized onsite programs. The topics include safety management, regulatory compliance, airport operations, air navigation systems management, dangerous goods regulation, and security management.

 IATA will also cooperate with India’s National Institute of Aviation Management and Research (NIAMAR) to explore new programs which could be jointly organized at the NIAMAR campus in Delhi.

The term of the MoU is for one year, and can be extended further based on mutual agreement.

“India is an important player in the aviation industry. It is a growth market for international aviation, and has a leadership role to play in global aviation issues. Talent development will be critical for India to address the ever changing priorities of Indian aviation and on international issues,” said Giovanni Bisignani, IATA’s Director General and CEO.
