ICAO, Russia to collaborate on aviation safety

The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) has signed a supplementary memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Russia’s federal aviation authority to work together on improving global aviation safety.

The collaboration with the Moscow based Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) will see the enhancement of aviation safety through ICAO’s No Country Left Behind initiative.

International Civil Aviation Organisation council president Dr Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu said: “Compliance with ICAO Standards is the prerequisite for accessing international air connectivity and all the socio-economic development opportunities it offers. These standards support the safety, security, efficiency and overall sustainability of the aviation network. ICAO’s No Country Left Behind ensures that States are supported as they address compliance issues.

“This MoU will help build the momentum behind the No Country Left Behind initiative, thereby contributing to the enhancement of the technical and financial assistance it offers to States in need and the broader achievement of sustainable development goals.”

 As part of the MoU, IAC will also work with lCAO through the framework of European Air Navigation Planning Group (EANPG) and European Regional Aviation Safety Group (RASG-EUR)
