Last week FIATA held its yearly World Congress in Istanbul, a very successful Congress indeed from many points of view, but surprises were not confined to logistics.
Together with a trove of thematic topics whose account will be given in other Media Releases the FIATA Extended Board and Presidency wishes to underline the exceptional results achieved during the Board Meeting and the following Gala Dinner on Friday night.
During its Board meeting FIATA decided to start a fund to help fight the Ebola outbreak and to place its worldwide resources at the service of the various international bodies that are taking action against the epidemic, but the real breakthrough came during the Gala Dinner where the nearly 1000 participants collected more than US$110,000 to top up the initial donation made available by FIATA itself.
