The city of Miami, American Airlines, FedEx Express and UPS will host the 71st IATA Annual General Meeting (AGM) and World Air Transport Summit in conjunction with Airlines for America (A4A), the trade association for the US airline industry.

The event will draw the leadership from the air transport industry to Miami, Florida from 7 June 9 June 2015.

Miami is a superb location for IATAs 71st AGM. This vibrant, multicultural city is well known as a gateway between North America and Latin America. Like aviation itself, Miami is a city that bridges cultures and nations. I am confident the AGM in Miami will be a huge success and an opportunity for air transport industry leaders to share their vision for the future of commercial aviation while drawing lessons from this diverse part of the world, said Tony Tyler, IATAs Director General and CEO.

This will be the first time that the IATA AGM is held in in Miami and the fifth time it will be hosted in the United States, following AGMs in Washington DC (2003), Honolulu (1971)  New York (1955), and San Francisco (1950).

Nicholas E. Calio, President and CEO of A4A, said, On behalf of the US airline industry, we are pleased to co-host the 71st IATA AGM in Miami with American Airlines, FedEx Express, and UPS. Scheduled commercial aviation was born 100 years ago not far from Miami, and today aviation supports some 5.7 million jobs in the United States and drives $1 trillion in economic activity. Aviation connects the world, and we look forward to welcoming global airline leaders to the United States, the birthplace of flight.

The 70th Annual General Meeting and World Air Transport Summit which has just concluded in Doha, Qatar attracted 1,000 participants. This included aviation leaders from among IATAs 240 member airlines, governments, international organizations, industry stakeholders, IATA strategic partners, and the media.
