The heads of the world's regional airline associations met in Brussels last month to issue a statement reaffirming their commitment to the industry-wide global sectoral approach to aviation and climate change. The associations are supporting the efforts of the International Air Transport Association and the Air Transport Action Group to push for a strong International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) commitment at the ICAO General Assembly in September.
