Coordinating Committee hosts United States delegation in Paris

Paris, 28 March — The following day, the members of the ECAC Coordinating Committee met with a delegation from the United States authorities. Led by Hugo Yon, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Transportation Affairs, Department of State, the nine-strong US delegation comprised representatives of the Department of Transportation, the Federal Aviation Administration and the Transportation Security Administration.
 
The main objective of this 23rd meeting between European and US counterparts was to continue their regular exchange of views on topics of common interest, including on environmental issues, with discussions
on the implementation of CORSIA and the latest developments in supersonic aircraft.
 
With the 40th Assembly coming up in the autumn, ICAO-related matters were high on the agenda this year, with both delegations sharing their respective priorities in various domains, such as aviation security and
safety, and their views on the ICAO Council elections.
 
The next meeting between the Coordinating Committee and the United States authorities will take place in 2021 in Washington DC.
