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.

In this WOI blog, we take a look at advertising and how it’s changing. No one wants to be
sold to – at least not directly. Consumers are also not stupid – so native and integrated ads
need to be transparent, non-disruptive, and “feel right”. Read on to learn how brands WOI
works with in Hong Kong, London, and around the world use native advertising to boost
If 2022 was all about “pivoting”, 2023 became all about “values”. By the end of the year, it became clear that lots of brands claimed to have values, while few actually did. Enter the era of silent quitting, high employee attrition, and a need for change.
In this interview with Omar Hosari, we discuss trends in the private jet sector, advice for those interested in a career in aviation and how to best apply corporate values.
