WTTC and IATA Partner on Seamless Passenger Experience

World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) and International Air Transport Association (IATA) are partnering to achieve the benefits of biometrics and deliver traveller digital identity management throughout the travel and tourism sector for a seamless passenger experience.

The agreement sees the two organisations adopt a common approach, exchange information and work together to energise the entire sector to achieve international harmonisation through the use of biometrics standards and interoperability.

IATA, on behalf of its member airlines, is promoting a range of innovations to be considered for airports of the future, including One iD, IATA’s vision of an end-to-end passenger experience.

WTTC, through its Seamless Traveller Journey programme, is working with existing initiatives to encourage the use of biometric technology and digital identity.
