Since its inception, the organization has expanded to some 180 airlines around the world, as well as more than 70 subsidiaries. ZED/MIBA Forum member airlines represent more than 90 countries and 6 continents. The management of the ZED program was merged with the MIBA program in 2001. These programmes are governed by three separate agreements: ZED/MIBA Forum Agreement, ZED Agreement and MIBA Agreement. The ZED-MIBA Forum (ZMF) is an umbrella organization consisting of ZED, which is for personal travel, and MIBA, which is for Duty Travel. The airlines join the ZED-MIBA Forum and participate either in the ZED agreement, or in the MIBA agreement, or both, as they wish. 24 The ZMF Forum ZMF Forum was established in 2002 to combine and streamline the administrative elements of the ZMF and MIBA programmes, and is subject to the ISTA 24 agreement on reciprocal travel facilities granted to their own employees and other legitimate persons, based on fixed tariff levels applicable to different distance zones. ZED/MIBA tariffs can only be combined with themselves and with ZED/MIBA tariffs if a formal agreement has been reached. See the chart on page 41.
