We salute the aviators, on International Civil Aviation Day

International-civil-aviation-day-2018Civil aviation is at the service of all mankind

The purpose of International Civil Aviation Day is to help generate and reinforce worldwide awareness of the importance of international civil aviation to the social and economic development of states. It also promotes the unique role of ICAO in helping States to cooperate and deliver a truly global rapid transit network at the service of all mankind.

Aviation is a fundamental enabler of global peace and prosperity

Viasat-CA-global-customersThe UN and world nations have now adopted Agenda 2030, and embarked on a new era in global sustainable development. The importance of aviation as an engine of global connectivity has never been more relevant to the Chicago Convention's objectives, which look to international flight as a fundamental enabler of global peace and prosperity.

Working together to ensure no country is left behind

The Council has selected the theme: Working Together to Ensure No Country is Left Behind as the key driver behind International Civil Aviation Day.

The campaign highlights ICAO’s efforts to assist all states in implementing ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs). The main goal of this work is to help ensure that SARP implementation is better harmonised globally so that all 
States have access to the significant socio-economic benefits of safe and reliable air transport and can address safety, security and emissions-related issues.

Viasat is connecting the world

The Viasat Commercial Aviation teams across the world strongly support ICAO's ideals and objectives. We're on a mission to connect the world, and our ViaSat-3 global broadband constellation will allow us to deliver a great broadband experience to every airline in every country in the world. We truly respect all civil aviation professionals for the service that they deliver, and we look forward to partnering with every airline in the world.

The wonderful benefits of civil aviation, and the 10.2 million people who work in the sector, are definitely worth celebrating. We salute you!
