Subject: Fairchild Dornier Supports IATA Proposal


            This comment is filed in support of IATA's proposal to sponsor a ".travel" TLD.

Travel has established itself as one of the largest component of e-commerce, but many still remain reluctant to purchase travel over the web.  

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

IATA has served as a neutral, trusted intermediary for decades, enabling the travel industry to efficiently meet customer needs.  IATA's strengths include standard-setting, accreditation of travel businesses and assignment of codes for airlines, airports, etc.  IATA is ideally positioned to perform the screening and verification functions which are at the heart of the proposal.  

We strongly encourage ICANN to grant the IATA application.  This will not only enable the merits of this concept to be proven, but may also have direct application to other areas of the web-based economy as well.
