Project Summary

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely disrupted cross-border travel. Air crew play a vital and unparalleled role by operating flights, maintaining safety and security, and enabling air links (including supply chains) to remain in place. APEC economies have implemented diverse and divergent requirements and procedures relating to, inter alia: testing requirements and test result recognition; vaccination recognition and proof of vaccination; and quarantine/isolation requirements and facility conditions. These inconsistencies can hinder the safe and efficient passage of air crew. This research project will produce a report that explores why ICAO guidelines are not being implemented across APEC and what might be possible to encourage greater harmonisation in the region. Additionally, this project looks to support and facilitate the safe and efficient transportation of air freight by adopting internationally consistent risk-based measures that minimise the transmission of COVID variants and maximise the safe transportation of air freight between economies. The report and its recommendations will lead to economic benefits for exporters/importers and predictability for air crew and airlines.
