Mendoza asks ICAO to help in ATO turnaround

First Posted 20:15:00 01/18/2008

MANILA, Philippines -- Transportation Secretary Leandro Mendoza Friday said he has invited International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) consultants to be part of a team that would steer the Air Transportation Office (ATO) back into compliance with international oversight standards.

Their target is for the ATO to recover its Category 1 rating with the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in three months.

"We have asked five consultants from ICAO and we have started calling for inputs from aviation stakeholders such as local airlines and tourism agencies so that ATO can recover its Category 1 rating," Mendoza told the Philippine Daily Inquirer (parent company of INQUIRER.net) in an interview.

Mendoza, who attended the opening of the New Bacolod-Silay airport Thursday night, cited the new facility as an example of a world-class, ICAO-compliant gateway outside Metro Manila.
