The Minister of Transport and Communications Marius Skuodis hopes that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will take ‘further actions’ after releasing the report scheduled for November regarding the plane forced to land in Minsk.

During his visit to Montreal, Marius Skuodis met with the Chairman of the ICAO Council Salvatore Sciacchitano and members of the Council and other representatives of the organisation. He reiterated that this year ‘we have repeatedly encountered events where civil aviation is being used for illegal or unprecedented purposes’. 

ICAO Report Deadline Approaches

‘First of all, we attach special importance to the ICAO investigation into the forced landing of Ryanair’s passenger aircraft in Minsk. We hope that the final report of the organisation’s researchers will be submitted on time, in November. It is also very important what actions the organisation will take after publishing the findings of the research,’ Skuodis said.
