About Us

Representing manufacturers and service providers for a safe, secure, sustainable and efficient international air transportation system

ICCAIA is the international organization for aerospace industry associations.

ICCAIA’s members are engaged in the design, development, manufacture and in-service support of aeronautical and space products and technologies, including related ground-based systems and services.

Recognized by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), ICCAIA provides an avenue for the world’s aerospace manufacturers and service providers to offer their industry expertise toward the development of the international standards and regulations necessary for the safety, security, efficiency and sustainability of air transport.

Advocating for the interests of the manufacturing community, we bring the manufacturers’ views and experience to improve the understanding of challenges and opportunities to key policy makers and regulators, both at ICAO and across the world.
