From the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, the aviation system has faced ever-growing challenges. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), through the Council Aviation Recovery Task Force (CART), in partnership with its Member States, international and regional organizations, and industry convened twice last year to address these challenges and to provide global guidance for a safe, secure and sustainable restart and recovery of the aviation sector.
The CART reconvened in early 2021 to review and update its guidance for States to counter the headwinds and accelerate the momentum for aviation restart and recovery. Following the emergence of virus variants, progress in vaccine rollouts and new tools for combating COVID-19, the work of CART has targeted specific issues related to testing and vaccination of passengers as part of a State's multilayer risk management strategy.
In a first-ever partnership, the International Coordinating Council of Aerospace Industries (ICCAIA), SJAC (Japan), AAIS (Singapore) and MAIA (Malaysia) are pleased to present this webinar to brief aviation and aerospace organisations in the Asian region on the CART Phase III recommendations. This briefing will offer insights as to how organisations can play their part in an internationally coordinated effort to restart the recovery of aviation.
