ICAO Global Air Navigation Plan

ICAO has strongly endorsed a revised Global Air Navigation Plan (GANP).

The Organisation explains that continuing safety progress will now be enhanced by complementary Air Navigation analysis and reporting cycles - as confirmed by last week's Assembly’s strong endorsement of the revised ICAO GANP.

ICAO believes that the revised Plan will enable it to practically and flexibly realise its long-sought-after goal of a globally-harmonised air navigation system.

With detailed aviation system block upgrade modules, the revised GANP claims to provide unprecedented levels of transparency and planning certainty to states, regional implementation groups, service providers, airspace users and industry stakeholders - providing clear guidance on the required operational targets and supporting standards needed over the next 15 years.

The Plan will include specific technologies, procedures and regulatory approvals.

The 38th ICAO Assembly also reiterated its guiding commitment to reduce the rate and number of accidents worldwide - now to be guided by incremental targets established in a revised ICAO Global Aviation Safety Plan (GASP).

The ICAO 38th Assembly included 1,845 participants from 184 Member States and 54 observer delegations - the largest in ICAO’s history.
