In its safety audit report released Wednesday, International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) said that Pakistan is among the 46 other countries to have scored 75 per cent of above in safety compliance as per international standards.
The report assessed the safety standards based on aviation rules, staff training, licensing aircraft operations, probing the accidents, and navigation services, among other things.
International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) underlined that the aviation accidents rose 16 per cent in the year 2019 compared to the previous year.
In the year 2019, the rate of accidents rose to 2.9 per million flights taking off globally, which is 12 more than what was in 2018: 2.6 accidents per million, the international aviation watchdog said in its safety report.
