IATA Urges #eyesopen in Human Trafficking Campaign

The International Air Transport Association (IATA), Airports Council International (ACI) and other aviation industry partners will launch a human trafficking awareness campaign during next year’s first quarter.

Dubbed #eyesopen, the campaign will initially concentrate on the airline community because the air services can be misused as a means of transporting victims. Guidelines on training airline cabin crew which are undergoing development at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCRH) will describe types of trafficking, victim and trafficker profiles and signals that might indicate a potential trafficking situation.

The program is to raise public awareness through in-flight communications and social me.
