Cetralised coordinated information sharing on the risk to civil aviation from conflicts is set to be put forward to the 191 member states of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
The centralised information sharing system was adopted as part of a progamme of work at the third and final meeting of ICAO’s task force on risks to civil aviation (TC-RCZ).
The TC-RCZ will submit the work programme to ICAO’s February 2015 High-level Safety Conference for approval for further development. The TC-RCZ was established after the loss of Malaysia Airlines’ Boeing 777 on flight MH17 over Eastern Ukraine.
Further work on the information sharing system is expected by ICAO to be informed by, “the promising trials of a European version of the system which has undergone some preliminary trials,” the organisation says.
