Earlier this month it was announced from Montréal that Juan Carlos Salazar of Colombia officially assumed the office of ICAO Secretary General, succeeding Dr Fang Liu of China.

Juan Carlos Salazar assumed this role as CEO of the UN’s specialized agency for civil aviation as the international flight network continues to assure the efficient global movement of food, vaccines, e-commerce, and other essential supplies and personnel, despite the air transport industry still being severely confronted by Covid-19, greatly diminished routes, and slowly rebounding international air travel and tourism.

Mr Salazar commented: ‘It is a great honour to be assuming this role at this time, and to have the opportunity to help governments and ICAO play an important part in how this sector builds back better and recovers from the global pandemic.’
