The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has called for coordinated efforts to deal with the challenges of growth in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

IATA director general and CEO Giovanni Bisignani has recommended that MENA’s governments adopt the IATA operational safety audit and the IATA safety audit for ground operations.

Bisignani has suggested opening the skies in MENA, 60% of which is used by the military, limiting capacity and forcing inefficient routings.

IATA is working on projects to redesign airspace in the Gulf area, facilitate more traffic for East-West traffic across North Africa and support ultra-long haul operations.

IATA is also working to complete the implementation of reduced vertical separation minima across MENA by bringing Iraq on board.

Bisignani has urged the governments in the MENA region to adapt local regulations to facilitate modern business practices, keep costs in check and create the regulatory framework to balance increasing long-haul opportunities with short-haul regional liberalisation.
