Travel has aleardy established itslef as the largest component of e-commerce but many consumers remain reluctant to purchase travel over the web because of uncertainty about the reputation and reliability of ".com" website operators who may be geographically remote, and whose qualifications and capabilities have not been verified by any independent party.

By screening travel website operators to assure compliance with transparent and objective criteria relevant to the conduct of e-commerce, IATA's innovative proposal will add value for both consumers and businesses. It will also give consumers the confidence necessary if e-business is to compete on an equal footing with traditional brick-and-mortar alternatives.

I believe that IATA is the appropriate entity to sponsor the travel industry's LTD.IATA has served as a neutral, trusted intermediary for decades, enabling the travel industry to efficiently meet the needs of its customers. IATA's acknowledged strengths include standard-setting, the accreditation of travel businesses 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.
