'Cabin operations safety is an integral part of our overall commitment to safety of flight; The Cabin Operations Safety Conference provides a forum to address the most important challenges from a global perspective, bringing together key stakeholders from across the aviation value chain, said Tony Tyler, IATA’s Director General and CEO.

The IATA will host the first Cabin Operations Safety Conference, 20-22 May 2014 in Madrid, Spain.
 
A large number of representatives from airlines, regulatory agencies, manufacturers and suppliers are expected to attend. Program highlights include:

  • Turbulence management
  • Safely carrying lithium batteries and reducing dangerous goods incidents
  • Preventing and managing unruly/disruptive passenger incidents
  • On-board usage of portable electronic devices
  • Cabin crew training
  • Inadvertent slide deployment prevention
  • Safety management systems
  • Fatigue risk management systems
Additionally, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will lead a full-day workshop on the ICAO Cabin Crew Safety Training Manual, a document which has been endorsed by IATA and the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) and which ICAO will be formally launching at the conference.

In line with its strong commitment to improving cabin safety, in 2013, IATA produced the Cabin Operations Safety Best Practices Guide (pdf).
