The Arab Air Carriers Organization (AACO) has signed a memorandum of understanding with MedAire for aviation security and assistance services. The initiative aims to assist airlines in receiving timely, accurate and actionable information to enhance their threat and risk assessments. Member airlines will receive airspace and airport assessments, access to travel safety and security advice, security and operational assistance, and other services. About 230 million passengers flew with AACO member airlines in 2018.
