Join the IATA Team!


IATA’s mission is to represent, lead, and serve the airline industry. We improve understanding of the air transport industry among decision makers and increase awareness of the benefits that aviation brings to national and global economies. Advocating for the interests of airlines across the globe, we challenge unreasonable rules and charges, hold regulators and governments to account, and strive for sensible regulation.

For over 70 years, we have developed global commercial standards upon which the air transport industry is built. Our aim is to assist airlines by simplifying processes and increasing passenger convenience while reducing costs and improving efficiency. We help airlines to operate safely, securely, efficiently, and economically under clearly defined rules. Professional support is provided to all industry stakeholders with a wide range of products and expert services.

Airline Codeshare correlative analysis

The IOSA Audit serves as an industry standard that is used among cooperating airlines. A frequent mode of cooperation is code-sharing. IATA would like to discover and understand the IOSA market and its needs through the lenses of code-share relationships, using traffic data.

The objective is to understand where, to which width and depth airlines codeshare with each other, and what is the correlation to IOSA registration. 

Incidentally, IATA would like to explore any other potential correlations with the outputs produced by the airline. For example, exploring the relationship between codeshare activities and crucial airline metrics.

IATA’s initial assessment showed IOSA certified airlines generally have more codeshare relations with other airlines than non-certified airlines, however, we noticed that this varies across individual airlines and network carriers with long history are mostly IOSA certified and thus, we did not conclude the clear correlation with IOSA and airline codeshare with the simple correlation. We would like to have conclusions as business insights and understand methodology used.

  • IOSA Registry: IOSA certification records for airlines;
  • Flight Schedule: Global flight schedule data from 2000 to 2020;
  • Passenger Count: Global passenger count data from 2017 to 2020.
