The FIATA General Meeting is the governing body of the organisation. The General Meeting passes resolutions that set the course for the organisation’s work and monitors progress on their achievement. It meets once a year to hold elect leadership and members; validate the annual report, budget and financial statements; and approve business conditions and regulations.

FIATA is composed of a Presidency, responsible of the executive management of the organisation; an Extended Board, which plays an advisory role to the presidency; and the Headquarters Team who – under the direction of the Presidency – determines and implements FIATA's strategic plan for the organisation to achieve its objectives.
