Canada acts to restrict drone zones

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has welcomed an announcement by Canada’s minister of Transport Marc Garneau that the government will implement an 'Interim Order' restricting the use of recreational drones around airports and other high risk areas.

"The introduction of this temporary order will help protect airspace users and the travelling public," said Rob Eagles, IATA’s director, Air Traffic Management and Infrastructure.

"In the face of an industry that is moving at an unprecedented pace, a smart approach to regulation and a pragmatic and firm method of enforcement is needed," said Eagles.
