David Watson, General Director, was happy to announce that Industry Travel Asia (ITA) become IATA's 82nd registered travel agency in Vietnam on December 27th, which was also his birthday. Vietnam has more than 1,200 ticketing agencies, but only 82 of them meet IATA's international standards for operations, financial controls, and banking guarantees allowing them to sell tickets directly for the airlines. 

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is the trade association of airlines. IATA's 240 airline members generate 84% of the worlds total air traffic. Private, military, and charter/non affiliated air transport companies make up the rest. Vietnam Airlines is a member of IATA.

Industry Travel Asia (ITA) can ticket directly for member airlines through IATA's regional Banking Settlement Processing (BSP) system. IATA registration allows ITA to assist smaller, non registered agencies, access ticketing for their clients. 

Industry Travel Asia (ITA) (www.industrytravel.asia) specialises in concessional ticketing for the travel and hospitality industry, and also provides corporate and executive travel agency services to the public. These services include hotel and resort bookings; hire car and limousine services; visa processing for tourists wanting visas in countries outside of Vietnam; converting/extending existing visas in Vietnam; travel insurance; and conversion of travel insurance to health insurance with local and worldwide coverage.
