The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has, on 1 December 2017, issued a EUR OPS Bulletin providing recommendations for operations in international airspace in the Baltic Sea region. The recommendations were prepared in an expert group meeting for flight safety over the Baltic Sea, hosted by Finland and chaired by Chief Adviser Kari Siekkinen of Trafi.
The bulletin lists the general principles and best practices that should be followed in an airspace used by both civil and military aircraft. The purpose of these practices is to further enhance flight safety.
Trafi’s Kari Siekkinen is content with the bulletin issued. The Baltic Sea states involved in the flight safety group as well as ICAO, NATO, the European Aviation Safety Agency EASA and Eurocontrol, the European Organisation for Safety of Air Navigation, have also expressed their satisfaction with the result achieved.
