IPATA Members Are Great Customers

A survey, conducted in 2010 by an U.S. airline, showed that IPATA members spent as much as $10 million annually in cargo revenues with them. Total revenue for this specialty cargo product (live animals) is more likely to total $75-$100 million in annual revenues worldwide with all airlines (scheduled and charter), along with additional passenger revenues that are tied to the passengers who decide to fly the same carrier and/or flights as their pets, and we believe these numbers are very conservative.

Delta Cargo"Delta Cargo understands that pet owners and transport companies have many options in today's marketplace. As an Associate IPATA member since 2008, our customers benefit from our membership because we are able to provide them up-to-date information on live animal shipping requirements applicable to our global network." - Cyndi Brown, Live Animal Specialist, Cargo Global Services, Delta Airlines
