BoostAero International (BAI) was created in May 2006 by 5 founding members (Dassault Aviation, GIFAS, Safran Group, Thales Group, Exostar) with the mission of supporting Aerospace and Defense business processes through the associated BoostAero standards (business processes, documents, data dictionaries and IT framework).

In 2022, the activities of the association BoostAero International (BAI) have been integrated into the supply chain domain of AFNeT to focus on all digital standardization (PLM, Systems Engineering, SupplyChain) within the association AFNeT.

The BAI standards were issued and validated in 2005 and are available for Aerospace & Defense companies that wish to exchange business documents with their business partners and for A&D suppliers who are imposed BoostAero standards by their customers. They have been used since January 2006 by a growing number of companies.

The specifications of the commercial requirements were submitted to the International Standardization Body UN/CEFACT (UN) by GIFAS, ASD (European Aerospace and Defence Association), and AIA (Aerospace Industries of America Association).

BoostAero XML is the standard XML interface implemented on AirSupply (between the customer and AirSupply and between AirSupply and suppliers).

AirSupply is one of BoostAeroSpace’s main services: Airbus is AirSupply’s leader.


Within the United Nations framework of the Economic and Social Council, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) serves as the focal point for trade facilitation recommendations and electronic business standards, covering both commercial and government business processes that can foster growth in international trade and related services.

In this context, the United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT) was established, as a subsidiary, intergovernmental body of the UNECE Committee on Trade, mandated to develop a programme of work of global relevance to achieve improved worldwide coordination and cooperation in these areas.
