The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has completed the annual review of its air transport industry manuals for cargo, ground handling and operations.

The manuals now incorporate the updates made to many industry standards over the past year, said the industry body.

It added that these revisions reflect the sector’s commitment to further improving safety, introducing more sustainable operations, as well as enhancing the passenger experience and cargo handling.

The changes include revised dangerous goods regulations.

With more than 1.25m dangerous goods shipments being flown by air on an annual basis, it is essential that the rules and regulations allowing for the safe transport of such substances and articles are revised to reflect safety and operational developments, said IATA.
