VIA was set up in 1994 on the initiative of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Alava in order to respond to the need to develop a policy to promote and market Vitoria International Airport as an international-class intermodal centre. Today, VIA is formed by four partners; Transport Department of the Basque Government, Vitoria-Gasteiz Town Hall, Provincial Council of Alava and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Alava.
VIAs main activity focuses on two areas. On the one hand, to disseminate information on the benefits and quality of the services offered by Vitoria International Airport among members of the World Freight Community. On the other, provide the businesses that operate on the airport with support in order to improve their services and increase their competitiveness on the international market. In this sense, we should highlight the fact that VIA forms part of the International Air Cargo Association (TIACA), a worldwide organisation that defends the interests of the air cargo industry and contributes to the development of international trade.
