Safety is aviation’s highest priority.
In a normal year, approximately 130,000 flights per day take off and land without incident. Furthermore, long-term accident trends confirm that aviation is getting safer. This presents a paradox. The safer aviation becomes, the more difficult to drive further improvements.
IATA’s Safety Strategy addresses this challenge through a three-pillar approach:
IATA Safety Talk - Call to Action
“Now, more than ever, it is the time where CEOs need to involve themselves in aviation safety and its details. The organization will not do it if you don’t do it. And you have to be first. Be an example of what the most important function of a CEO is, which is to become the safety officer of the company.”
Enrique Beltranena, CEO Volaris, Member of IATA Board of Governors
