“The audit results statistic showed that 131 airlines implemented IGOM” say officials at IATA, noting 92 airlines were IATA members. “In terms of GHSPs – 172 stations confirmed following the IGOM. In 2022, we started tracking the adoption of the IGOM procedures via the Portal, presently we have over 60 airlines that joined the platform and are working on the gap analysis. We will be able to share more details of the adoption rate and variations by the end of 2022.”
