The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is also an Institutional Partner of Solar Impulse.

IATA represents no less than 240 airlines accounting for 94% of scheduled international air traffic. The organization represents, leads and serves the airline industry in general. IATA has committed to promoting and supporting Solar Impulse, and to facilitating smooth take-offs and landings during its round-the-world flight.

"Solar Impulse and IATA share a common vision. We are natural partners. We are both looking towards a zero carbon emission future for air travel. Solar power is one of the building blocks that will make this happen. The Solar Impulse initiative is proof that with vision anything is possible - even carbon free flight." Giovanni Bisignani, Director General and CEO of IATA
