Subject: SAir Group supports IATA's proposal


This comment is filed in support of the IATA proposal to sponsor a "travel" TLD
Travel has already established itself as the largest component of e-commerce.

By screening "travel" website operators to assure compliance with transparent and objective criteria relavant to the conduct of e-commerce, IATA's innovative proposal will add value for both consumers and business.

I believe that IATA is the appropriate entity to sponsor the travel industry's TLD. IATA has served as a neutral, trusted intermediary for decades, enabling the travel industry to efficiently meet the need of its customers. IATA's acknowledged strenghts include standard-getting, the acccredidation of travel business and assignment of codes for airlines, airports, etc. Thus, it is ideally positioned to perform the screening and verification functions which lie at the heart of the proposal and which are notably absent from today's "com." environment.

I strongly encourage ICANN to grant the IATA application. This will not only enable the merits of this innovative concept to be proven, but may also have direct applications to other sectors of the new economy in the future.

Sincerely yours

Philippe Bruggisser
