Travel’s new world: ACI and IATA reveal roadmap for restarting aviation
Airports Council International (ACI) World and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) have called on governments to ensure new measures introduced for airports and airlines in the wake of COVID-19 are consistent across the world. Any restrictions put in place should be supported by scientific evidence, they added.
ACI and IATA have jointly issued a paper laying out a pathway for restarting the aviation industry – Safely Restarting Aviation – ACI and IATA Joint Approach. They said that airlines and airports have cooperated to build a roadmap for resuming operations “which reassures the traveling public that health and safety remain the priorities”. The roadmap mirrors proposals put forward in a statement by IATA last night (see below).
