The article reports that the International Air Transport Association (IATA) is pushing for further improvements in airline safety, as a series of accidents in 2005 highlights concerns over the level of performance in Africa and South America. Initiatives toward reaching the goal include an increased focus on Africa--the region with by far the worst safety record--and the implementation of the IATA Operational Safety Audit across the entire membership base. IATA presented a detailed action plan to the African Safety Enhancement Team summit last year and agreed to implement a safety road map in cooperation with the International Civil Aviation Organization.
