ICAO issued a statement Thursday on the Zika virus, saying it was coordinating with relevant agencies on procedures and responses for the air transport industry.

The brief statement said ICAO was closely cooperating with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, IATA, Airports Council International and other UN and aviation agencies under the lead of the World Health Organization (WHO).

The Zika virus, transmitted by the Aedes mosquito, has spread through Latin America and the Caribbean.

“Management of the outbreak is currently focused on reducing the populations of the Aedes mosquito that transmit the virus at airports (vector control); strengthening surveillance of the mosquito population and the development of the disease amongst humans; and fast-tracking research to improve the understanding of the disease and its control—including potential links to microcephaly and neurological disorders,” ICAO said.

ICAO added that standard guidance material on the use of insecticides for aircraft was available in WHO documents andon the WHO website.

In the past, epidemics like SARS and Ebola have affected both travel demand and procedures at airports and onboard airliners.

So far, however, there have been no reports of airlines seeing an impact on travel demand related to the virus. But many South American carriers are already having a tough time because of other factors, including weak economies, poor infrastructure and government policies.
