Applications are constantly open for the Undergraduate Internship Program at International Air Transport Association (IATA). IATA offers a unique experience to individuals who are currently studying an undergraduate degree and want to have a work assignment on a part-time basis (50% to 80%). Interns benefit from experience in an international and fast-paced environment while contributing to IATA’s day-to-day mission by performing support/administrative tasks.

IATA Internships incorporate talented, innovative and motivated individuals, fresh from academic training, into the IATA working environment. Each intern has significant opportunities to demonstrate skills as well as to learn and develop in an international business environment.

Internships at IATA are available in two programs:

  1. International Graduate Internship Program (IGIP) – full-time opportunity for recent university graduates
