International Air Transport Association (IATA) has called for Russia to implement global standards and best practices to maximise its growing air travel sector, which supports 1.1 million jobs and accounts for 1.6 percent of the country’s GDP.

According to IATA, Russia has seen a 12 percent surge in passenger services this year, along with robust growth in air freight.

Alexandre de Juniac, director general, IATA, said, “To write the next chapter in the successful development of Russian aviation, the country must continue to align with global standards and best practices. Ratification of [Montreal Protocol 2014] and volunteering to join [Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation] would send a powerful signal that Russia is taking a leadership position in global aviation affairs.”
