The Australian Travel Industry Association – ATIA


The Australian Travel Industry Association (ATIA) is the peak body for Australia’s travel businesses and represents the majority of retail and corporate travel agents, tour operators, wholesalers and consolidators. Our members range in size from the largest listed organisations such as Flight Centre, Helloworld, Corporate Travel Management and Webjet, through to small independently owned and operated travel businesses.

Founded in 1957 as the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA), the association rebranded to ATIA on 15 August 2023 to better reflect the diverse travel community. Our mission is to highlight the integrity of our members through effective approaches in advocacy, industry recognition and awards, and ultimately boosting the confidence of the travelling public. Our aim has been to stimulate, encourage and promote travel, and to uphold the interests of travel businesses who form a vital part of Australia’s highly specialised travel and tourism industry.
