Subject: Iata: AccesRail supports .travel


                AccesRail supports IATA's proposal to sponsor a "travel" top-level domain name. We believe it to be very important for .travel to be established as .com has nearly reached it's full capacity and does not require any qualifications of it's operators.

By screening ".travel" website operators to assure compliance with specific criteria, IATA's proposal will add value to consumers and businesses.

IATA's strengths include standard-setting , the accreditation of travel agencies, assignment of codes for airlines, airports, etc.

Contrary to popular belief that IATA caters only to major airlines interests, AccesRail a rail provider can attest to IATA showing great initiative in the development of rail services in the domain of the GDS. Based on this past interaction and cooperation with IATA, AccesRail believes that IATA is well-positioned to sponsor the ".travel" TLD.

We strongly encourage ICANN to grant the IATA application.
