The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is developing a new initiative designed to increase air safety and efficiency in the Caribbean.

“The Caribbean is of critical importance to the U.S.,” said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta. “By working together, we are building a foundation of increased cooperation that will allow us to enhance safety and efficiency throughout a region that serves as a destination for so many travelers.”

The strategy will focus on airport safety, increasing certification in the area, improving air traffic flow management, and implementing International Civil Aviation Organization standards.

The FAA is also conducting an airspace study of the region and has partnered with Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Trinidad and Tobago in bilateral exchanges of traffic-flow data.
