ICAO Launches Conflict Zone Resource

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has launched a new website issuing risk warnings to aircraft in conflict zones.

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has launched a new website issuing risk warnings to aircraft in conflict zones.

Set up in response to recommendations from the UN agency’s High-level Safety Conference in February, the new resource can be found on ICAO’s public website.

It will provide up-to-date information on potential risks to civil aviation arising from armed conflict for state representatives, airlines and the general public.

ICAO’s Council president Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu said: “This centralised repository is meant to enhance the existing global framework whereby each state is responsible for assessing risks to civil aviation in their airspace, and for making that information promptly available to other states and airlines.”
