The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced that Calin Rovinescu, president and CEO of Air Canada, has assumed his duties as chairman of the IATA Board of Governors for a one-year term, effective immediately. Rovinescu succeeds Richard H. Anderson, CEO of Delta Air Lines, whose one-year term expired at the conclusion of the Association’s 70th Annual General Meeting (AGM) and World Air Transport Summit in Doha, Qatar. IATA also announced that the Board of Governors appointed Andres Conesa, Aeromexico CEO to serve as chairman from June 2015 following Rovinescu’s term.

“As we continue to celebrate 100 years of commercial aviation, I am excited at the opportunity of taking on the Chairmanship of the IATA Board of Governors. Air transport delivers enormous benefits to the global economy every day. I look forward to working closely with director general and CEO Tony Tyler to encourage and support industry and government policies and practices that will enable aviation to play an even bigger role in the global economy during the second century of commercial flight,” said Rovinescu.
