The International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) has introduced its new Crew Card with security enhancements and recently partnered with ID90 Travel to provide special member benefits to card holders.
Kurt Edwards, Director General, IBAC, commented, “We are excited to launch the new Crew Card with its added ID90 Travel membership. In addition to its globally recognized identity benefits, the Crew Card now offers special travel discounts as a well-deserved perk for card holders in the global business aviation community that work hard to provide first class services to their customers.”
Widely recognized by airport security and facilitation officials around the world, the Crew Card was first introduced by IBAC in 1985 and is increasingly requested by governments as part of crew visa applications. The new, improved card is aligned with provisions from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Document 9303 and has a bar code system with origination details for enhanced security. In addition, IBAC Crew Card subscribers can opt in to ID90 Travel benefits that offer members exclusive rates on hotels, all-inclusive resorts, cruises, rental cars, and last-minute deals (air travel not included).
IBAC Crew Cards are intended to identify the crew members linked to business aircraft, easing ramp access, and assisting customs identification. The IBAC Crew Card is issued to aviation professionals of business aviation organizations who are current members of one of the 15 IBAC member associations.
Once the IBAC Crew Card subscriber’s credentials are confirmed they will be granted easy access to travel deals through the ID90 Travel mobile app, available through common app stores.
The ID90 Travel platform is built for the aviation industry and includes 1.8 million hotels, all-inclusive resorts, and cruise lines, and a large selection of rental cars worldwide in inventory.
