May 08, 2019 / International Airport Review

During his recent European mission, ICAO Council President Dr. Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu met with air transport leaders to discuss matters relating to aviation training, human resources development, the next generation of aviation professionals, the accelerating progress of new aircraft and air services innovations now confronting global air transport regulators and operators, exponential growth and rapid digitalisation of air services, and the continuous efforts toward reduced air transport emissions being pursued sector-wide. Aliu broached these and other topics, including the key issues to be addressed at ICAO’s upcoming 40th Assembly in September 2019, during bilateral discussions with Henrik Hololei, Director General for Mobility and Transport at the European Commission and Patrick Ky, Executive Director of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and other senior EASA officials.
