The COVID-19 outbreak has led to an unprecedented reduction in the number of passenger-carrying flights and an increase in the need to transport critical and often life-saving cargo, including dangerous goods, quickly all over the world. States are facing a number of challenges in ensuring these goods are transported safely and efficiently.
This webinar will provide guidance on ensuring dangerous goods personnel are competently trained despite the need for physical distancing, loading dangerous goods on aircraft with passenger cabins that have been repurposed for transport of cargo, and determining who can be on board an aircraft carrying dangerous goods not permitted on an aircraft carrying passengers. The webinar will also provide information on efforts ICAO is taking to address land and air interface transport obstacles by engaging cargo stakeholders in identifying and alleviating bottlenecks affecting air cargo shipments.
