This trial was a collaborative venture between members of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Simplifying Passenger Travel (SPT) initiative. Led by BAA, the UK Regional Group also comprised Accenture, Cathay Pacific, Emirates, IER, Raytheon, Sagem, SITA and IND along with a number of associate partners. Each partner provided resources at their own cost; in the case of central Government this amounted to staff costs only. The use of collaboration groups enables low cost, low risk trial delivery as costs and risks are distributed to the collaboration partner that is best able to manage the risk.
