The International Federation of Air Line Pilots’ Associations
Located in London since its founding in 1948, the International Federation of Air Line Pilots’ Associations (IFALPA), representing almost 100 Member Associations with over 100,000 airline pilots, decided to move its head office to Montréal in 2012 to be closer to other industry key players involved in aviation safety.
Why Montréal was the best choice
Did you know that Montréal is home to 65 international organizations, the largest number in North America after New York and Washington? The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) are just two of the many prestigious organizations that contribute to Montréal’s exceptional international reputation. Montréal is also recognized as the capital of civil aviation with 10 organizations specialized in the field.
For Christoph Schewe, Managing Director of the IFALPA, what sets Greater Montréal apart is:
- Its large community of international organization. Montréal is Canada’s most international city
- A strategic location at the crossroads of Europe and America. Montréal is a hub for air, sea, rail androad transportation
- A safe and stable social and economic environment
