Qatar Elected Chair of ICAO’s Air Transport Committee


The State of Qatar has been elected chair of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)’s Air Transport Committee (ATC).

Representatives of ICAO Member States have elected the Permanent Representative of the State of Qatar to the ICAO Council Essa Abdulla Al Malki as ATC Chairperson during the ICAO Council meeting at the headquarters in Montreal, Canada.

On this occasion, HE Minister of Transport Jassim Saif Ahmed Al Sulaiti said that electing Qatar to this position is a recognition by the international community of Qatar’s effective contributions and leading role in finding solutions to numerous challenges of the international civil aviation. That election, he added, also reflects the faith of the ICAO Member States in Qatar’s global standing within the civil aviation community, since it was elected as a member of the ICAO Council in 2022.

The ATC is a subsidiary body of the ICAO Council responsible for providing assistance and advice on air transport matters as outlined by the Convention on Int
ernational Civil Aviation. The ATC recommends the adoption of Standards and Recommended Practices related to air transport and provides crucial information to contracting states to aid in the development of international agreements and government policies related to air transport.
