The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has recommended that the Israeli Government and aviation industry use global standards to power the growth of its air transport sector.

IATA director general and CEO Giovanni Bisignani has urged Israel to speed up its exit from Category 2 of the US Federal Aviation Administration’s International Aviation Safety Assessment.

Bisignani said the regulator should uphold global standards decided through the International Civil Aviation Organization.

The IATA chief also highlighted the urgent need for Israel to designate an alternate airport to Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion International Airport to handle operational irregularities.

IATA has recommended that Israel implement e-freight to enhance cargo security. It has also begun effective use of a security code programme and opposed the airport authority’s plan to increase charges by 51% for 2009-2010.

Bisignani has urged Israel to support IATA’s efforts for a global approach and to voice its opposition to “ineffective unilateral schemes” such as Europe’s plans to include aviation in its emissions trading scheme from 2012.
