Voluntary Support for ICAO’s Work


China supported ICAO’s work in the areas of air transport policy and infrastructure economics by seconding an Air Transport Officer and an Infrastructure Officer.


France and Germany supported ICAO’s work in the areas of air transport policy, infrastructure management and statistics by funding two Junior Professional Officers.


The ICAO Council, at its 201st Session in February, approved the establishment of the Voluntary Air Transport Fund (TRAF), as recommended by the Sixth Worldwide Air Transport Conference (ATConf/6), in support of the Organization’s work in the air transport field. The TRAF serves as a mechanism for the collection and use of voluntary contributions from States and other donors to support ICAO air transport programmes in a responsible, consistent, transparent, efficient and timely manner. A State letter was subsequently issued to all Member States seeking contributions to the Fund.
