Federation of ASEAN Travel Associations joins World Travel Agents Associations Alliance

The World Travel Agents Associations Alliance (WTAAA) is pleased to welcome the Federation of ASEAN Travel Associations (FATA) as its newest member, further boosting its global representation of travel advisors. Representing over 7,700 travel agents across the 10 ASEAN countries, FATA’s addition significantly expands WTAAA’s presence in the Asia-Pacific region.

“FATA’s addition marks a significant expansion of WTAAA’s presence in the Asia-Pacific region, expanding the organisation’s unified voice for the travel agency sector worldwide,” said Otto de Vries, Executive Director of WTAAA. “By combining our resources and collective expertise, we can advocate more effectively for the interests of agencies serving the diverse ASEAN region and its over 622 million residents. Together, we will raise and advocate for beneficial industry standards, develop new opportunities, and promote global collaboration that drives success for our members at both local and global levels.”

As the umbrella body for Southeast Asia’s national travel associations, FATA serves as a crucial platform for addressing regional tourism issues, challenges and trends. Key objectives include fostering cooperation among members, building strong partnerships, and contributing to tourism growth across ASEAN countries.

“WTAAA’s global scale and expertise will complement FATA’s local insights as we collaborate to shape a sustainable, agent-friendly travel industry,” said Pauline Suharno, President of FATA. “This alliance comes at an important time as our sector focuses on safely reopening tourism and supporting economic revival in the region.”
