Webinar IATA on repatriation of human remains by air

Unique opportunity for all repatriation companies or those interested in repatriation of human remains by air! Take part in the IATA (International Air Transportation Association) webinar: “Compassionate Transportation - all you need to know about the transport of human remains by air”

Air transport has grown significantly and provides a globally connected network supporting businesses. At the same time the human population has become much more mobile.
For the next-of-kin this may mean that they wish to repatriate the remains for a funeral in the home country.

The IATA Compassionate Transportation Manual (CTM) constitutes a manual of standards, procedures and recommended practices to assist supply chain, partners, freight forwarders, funeral directors and airlines in the transport of human remains.

There are two available dates and times for convenience and to facilitate the participation of FIAT-IFTA members in different time zones.

Join this webinar to:

  • Get an introduction to the existing standards and requirements regarding the compassionate handling and transport of human remains.
  • Learn how the funeral homes consolidates the documents and logistic requirements for international funeral shipping.
  • Hear how an airline uses the CTM Checklist to ensure compliance.
  • Ask your questions!
