Today airlines’ data-driven strategies require a trusted data source to keep a tight control over cost drivers and performance data. ACMG is an industry-wide airline cost data benchmarking initiative launched by IATA, with the aim to share best practices for effective cost management, analyze major cost drivers and various industry cost trends from a centralized global data repository and support the industry effort in managing airline cost drivers.
To be considered an ACMG 2019 Participant and become eligible to access the ACMG BI tool an airline must submit their annual airline cost and operational metrics (2018) in the required ACMG standard format and agree to the annual ACMG participation fees.
The annual participation fee for ACMG 2019 membership is USD2,500. Payment of the annual fee shall be made via the IATA Clearing House within thirty (30) days of receipt of the completed ACMG 2018 data toolset.
Please indicate your acceptance of these payment terms and the additional terms and conditions further down on this page by "CHECKING" the box below.
These terms and conditions (Terms and Conditions) set forth the terms and conditions for the collection and use of operational cost data (Data) provided by airlines (Airlines and each an Airline), participating in the Airline Cost Management Group (ACMG) via the ACMG Data toolset (Toolset), for use in the preparation of annual airline operational cost reports (Reports and each a Report) issued by the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

The Reports shall be made available only to Airlines that participated in the Data collection process. Airlines may not disclose all or part of a Report to a third party without IATA’s prior written consent. Nothing in the foregoing shall be interpreted as prohibiting an Airline from disclosing its own Data to a third party.
