In case you've missed anything, here are the top aviation policy developments from the past few days:
- Following Qatar's abandoned effort to seize ICAO hosting responsibilities from Canada, ICAO formally committed to keeping its headquarters in Montreal through 2036.
- India is preparing new rules that will allow pilots to nap on longer flights.
- IATA plans to present an industry-supported proposal for aviation emissions reduction at next week's World Air Transport Summit.
- Ryanair, having been thwarted in repeated attempts to acquire control of Aer Lingus, may now be forced to sell its minority stake following a ruling by the UK Competition Commission.
- Heathrow officials are planning a variety of measures to combat airport noise, including publishing rankings of the noisiest operators, increasing noise-related fines, making changes to operating procedures and adjusting the level of noise compensation for nearby residents. It is hoped that these noise mitigation efforts will help win support for the construction of a third runway.
