International Air Transport Association (IATA) postponed the 14th World Air Cargo Symposium (WCS) scheduled to be held in Istanbul, Turkey from March 10-12, 2020 into next year due to the threat posed by coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19). “Since the first outbreak of COVID-19 in mainland China, we have been monitoring the situation in Istanbul closely. There has been an increase in the number of participant cancellations over the past few days for reasons including company travel bans and senior delegates needing to stay close to the base during the crisis, therefore, we feel that it would be best to postpone the event,” as per the IATA announcement.
