UNITED NATIONS, February 5. /TASS/. The member-states of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) have supported the idea of developing an online system to assess risk factors for flights in the zones of armed actions, a spokesman for the UN Secretary-General said on Thursday.
Earlier this week, a high-level international safety meeting in Montreal agreed to approve a new standard for flight-tracking, in accordance with which pilots are to identify the position of an aircraft every 15 minutes.
The new rules could be adopted already this autumn.
"On the issue of risks to civil aviation arising from conflict zones, ICAO said that member States at the Conference expressed strong support for a proposal to develop a prototype online resource for global conflict zone risk assessments," spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.
ICAO has been seeking to improve security measures following the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 last March and the shooting down of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 in eastern Ukraine in July last year. These incidents were the focus of the conference in Montreal.
