Task Force on Conflict Zones

The European High-Level Task Force on Conflict Zones handed over its final report to Mrs Bulc, European Commissioner for Transport.

In the aftermath of the tragic downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine, the report contains recommendations addressing the risks to civil aviation when flying over conflict zones. A summary of the report is attached.

The recommendations of the report include the development of a common European risk assessment of conflict zones and a quick alert mechanism to notify the aviation community. The report also calls for cooperation among Member States and with the European Commission to enable the timely sharing of information and the timely identification of rapidly emerging threats. The report concludes that measures need to be taken at national and European levels to limit the risks posed to civil aviation from regional conflicts zones.
