Space Imaging, IATA Form Partnership To Sell Aviation Imagery
Space Imaging reached an exclusive agreement for its aviation geospatial products to be sold by the Montreal-based International Air Transport Association (IATA), which represents the world’s commercial airlines. The imagery, derived from Space Imaging’s IKONOS satellite as well as from the Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) and Landsat satellites, would be able to aid air transport safety and efficiency for airlines and airports. The deal is especially significant because IATA’s membership includes more than 270 airlines that compose 95 percent of all international scheduled air traffic.
