Smet acquires the status of IATA Agent

This is another very important result for the company. As in the case of FIATA Agents, for which we acquired the status in September this year, IATA Agents also enjoy many advantages. The company, which from now on will have an IATA identification code, now has access to more than 250 airlines, already members of IATA, which use a standard Sales Agency Agreement. In addition, we will be authorized to sell domestic and international tickets on behalf of the airlines themselves. Obtaining status also ensures compliance with unified standards for all operations with airlines. «An extraordinary step forward in our journey towards a more and more world-wide internationalization», commented Smet CEO Domenico De Rosa.
