THE UN's International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) has appealed to world governments to ensure the priority of air mail during the Covid crisis, reports American Shipper.

 

In a joint communique, ICAO and the Universal Postal Union urged UN agencies to have ICAO's Aviation Recovery Task Force to prioritise airmail, including emergency food and medical necessities.

 

"As a critical infrastructure in the provision of essential services, posts require support to maintain their operations in the face of the major challenges posed by the pandemic," said the communique.

 

"Posts are actively engaged in the transport by air of vital medical and humanitarian supplies, consumer goods, and e-commerce and essential items needed to fight the current pandemic, including information materials for public dissemination and Covid-19 samples and test kits to support comprehensive research into understanding this disease," the statement said.

 

"The fulfilment of the international postal service mission, as well as that of air cargo carriers and express mail operators, is highly dependent on the support of member countries in recognising the essential nature of these services, ensuring operators' financial stability and providing their workers with the flexibility required to undertake their duties."
