The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has announced the retirement of Baojian ZHANG, IATA’s Regional Vice President (RVP) for North Asia effective December 14, 2018.
Zhang joined IATA from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) in 1994 and founded IATA’s operations in China. Under Zhang’s strong leadership, IATA membership in North Asia has grown to 36 airlines with China having the largest concentration of IATA member airlines of any country. Over the last 24 years IATA’s China team grew from 3 to exceed 130 today. And IATA’s BSP in China is the largest in the world, recording nearly 190 million transactions in 2017.
Until a permanent successor is named, Conrad Clifford, IATA’s RVP for Asia Pacific will also lead IATA’s efforts in North Asia.Email Post to a Friend
