Airline Focus Initiative

Airline Membership

The ISTAT Board of Directors launched the Airline Focus Initiative in September 2010. With this initiative, ISTAT invites qualifying airlines from around the world to attend ISTAT events and become active members. The primary target within an airline shall be those individuals directly involved in the following areas:

Aircraft trading, Aircraft finance and/or Fleet planning

Each airline participating in this initiative must abide by the following criteria:

Airline Membership Criteria - Qualifying airlines are defined by ISTAT as organizations with a current commercial airline operating certificate who are actively providing scheduled or charter commercial passenger and/or freight service using large commercial transport aircraft. To be considered for free membership and conference registration, the airline MUST provide their airline operating certificate identification number.

Free Membership - A free corporate membership will cover up to six members. Additional members may join ISTAT at a reduced rate of $300/year. To maintain a "Free" corporate membership for each subsequent year, an airline must continue to satisfy the airline criteria above.

Free Conference Attendance - Up to two corporate members from each airline shall be allowed to attend the ISTAT Americas, EMEA, Asia, Latin America and Freighter Forums as guests of ISTAT with no registration fees. The airline representatives attending each event (if any) must be one of the airline individuals covered by the corporate membership and must have material responsibilities in aircraft trading, finance and/or fleet planning at the airline. Additional members from the corporate member airline shall receive a discount off the normal conference registration fees.

If your company is an airline interested in joining ISTAT and your company can meet the criteria above, please fill out the Airline Membership Application to submit to ISTAT Headquarters for approval. If you have any questions, please contact with any questions or concerns.
