FAQ - Assessment of Commercial Air Operators participating in scheduled commercial flights
How does the United Nations assess air operators (not involved in charter work to UN operations)?
Commercial passenger air operators are assessed based on a methodology provided by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). Publicly available and subscription-based information is utilized to support this methodology.
How can I ensure that the information the United Nations is using to assess my air operations is correct?
In order to ensure that the UN is working with the most current information, air operators are encouraged to review, report and update information (including flight schedules) related to their operations per established industry practices.
Sources referenced include, but are not limited to the following:
Does the United Nations have a ‘ban list’ for airlines?
The United Nations does not have a ‘ban list’ for scheduled passenger airlines.
Whom do I contact to discuss negative news linking our airline to the United Nations?
The United Nations does not provide air operator information to the public. As a general rule, and in order to protect the integrity of the UN’s internal working processes, the UN does not provide authentication of, or comment on, documents alleged to be from leaked internal or confidential UN documents.
