  • Company History

    IAS Ltd (IASL) was created in 1994, by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines to meet the demands and the challenge of increasing globalisation of the marine and offshore crew travel markets.

    Initially the first IASL subsidiary, IAS Europe Ltd (IASE), dealt only with Marine travel agents in the UK on behalf of KLM.

    However IASE quickly expanded and distribution was extended to marine travel agents in other European territories in 1995. IAS also took over the Offshore Oil and Gas industry travel market on behalf of KLM.

    In the same year IAS Americas was established in Houston, USA to handle the KLM marine and offshore product in the Americas.

    In the years that followed IAS expanded by opening a new subsidiary in Manila, The Philippines - IAS Asia and grew by extending its representation services to more airlines.

    Today the IAS group provides its services to 11 Airlines in total.

    The Concept of IAS

    • Expertise and market intelligence to formulate a competitive and user friendly fare structure for use by validated marine and offshore industry travellers.
    • Reservation centres in London (Europe), Houston (America), and Manila (Asia). These centres are linked to provide a 24/7 service to marine and offshore travel agents globally.
    • Specialised staff in sales, reservations and accounting who are highly trained to meet the high level of service requirements of the marine and offshore travel markets.
    • Investment in unique technological solutions to handle the demands of different airlines, multiple reservation systems, and agent bespoke requirements.
    • Online access to Voyage database with instant quotes, up-to-date fares, refunds and statements.
