ICAO: Revisions to safety and air navigation plans will support emissions reductions

ICAO secretary general Dr Fang Liu, during her closing speech to the 40th ICAO Assembly, highlighted (08-Oct-2019) several new endorsements by states relevant to aviation safety and air navigation capacity and efficiency, including "new revisions to ICAO's Global Aviation Safety and Air Navigation Plans which will be instrumental both to achieving reduced flight emissions and managing the adoption and integration of new 21st Century aircraft and operations alongside traditional aircraft operations".
