Mr. Kızıltunç is also elected as Vice-Chair Digital Transformation Advisory Council for 2022-2024 period and he is to be assigned as Chair Digital Transformation Advisory Council for 2024-2026 period.

Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee and Board of Governors member in IATA, Prof. Dr. Ahmet Bolat stated: “After IATA Board of Governors membership, Turkish Airlines’ appearance on global stage is strengthening with these 4 significant assignments.

These high-profile assignments to 4 of the 9 IATA Advisory Councils will positively affect the competence of Turkish Airlines in the airline industry. Elected executives of Turkish Airlines will advise the Board and work closely with IATA management on all matters referred by the IATA Director General with all other council member airlines.

IACs members are appointed by the Director General based on nominations from member airline CEOs and following review by the Chair Committee and the approval of the Chair Committee and the Board. The Advisory Councils meet at least twice a year at IATA’s offices in Montreal, Geneva, Singapore, Miami, or Madrid and may establish working groups to provide technical advice on an on-going basis and task forces to address specific time-limited projects.
