Poll: Civil Aviation Authorities In Which Region Will Likely Produce The Most Workable Common Guidance For Restarting Air Travel?

IATA has called on the governments of Saudi Arabia and Jordan to step in with financial support measures for their aviation sectors as they struggle to cope with the COVID-19 crisis. 

In both Jordan and Saudi Arabia, that support could take the form of direct financial support to passenger and cargo carriers; financial relief on air traffic control charges and taxes; or the reduction, waiver or deferral of government-imposed taxes and fees 

Meanwhile, The Arab Air Carriers’ Organization (AACO), which represents more than 30 airlines in the region, has proposed a plan to ensure that health measures designed to get passengers back into the air are “risk-based and globally harmonized.”

AACO has proposed a roadmap to ease the return to service, based on the ICAO Council Aviation Restart Task Force  conducting a global risk assessment of countries according to clear assessment criteria, followed by categorization of countries according to several levels of risk exposure.
