1In September 2007, approximately 70 people assem-bled in Washington, D.C., to participate in a workshopon Interagency–Aviation Industry Collaboration on Planning for Pandemic Outbreaks. The conference brought together individuals involved in planning and responding to pandemic events— from both the public sec- tor (federal agencies and state and local agencies, includ- ing public airports) and the private sector (airlines and consultants with expertise in various facets of aviation). The workshop goals were to examine (a) the action items included in the section on Transportation and Bor- ders in the May 2006 National Pandemic Plan that directly or indirectly affect air transportation, (b) the current state of the practice for pandemic planning by airports and airlines, (c) coordination among various agencies and the aviation sector to implement these plans, and (d) potential areas for public–private sector cooperation in pandemic planning. To plan the workshop, TRB assembled a committee appointed by the National Research Council to organize and develop the workshop program. Katherine B. Andrus of the Air Transport Association chaired the planning committee. Katherine Turnbull of the Texas Transportation Institute prepared this summary of the workshop. The workshop program was designed to maximize the exchange of information and perspectives among the pro- gram participants. During the workshop, consecutive ses- sions were organized on the major issues identified by the planning committee. Individuals invited to the workshop were asked to participate in sessions directly related to their area of expertise and professional responsibilities. The sessions were moderated to facilitate open discussion of the issues among all invited participants. This sum- mary report is based on the moderated discussions that took place in each session on the workshop agenda. This report was reviewed in draft form by individuals chosen for their diverse perspectives and technical exper- tise, in accordance with procedures approved by the National Research Council’s Report Review Committee. The purposes of this independent review are to provide candid and critical comments that will assist the institu- tion in making the published report as sound as possible and to ensure that the report meets institutional stan- dards for objectivity, evidence, and responsiveness to the project charge. The review comments and draft manu- script remain confidential to protect the integrity of the deliberative process. TRB thanks the following individuals for reviewing this report: Katherine Andrus, Air Transport Association; Kathryn Maxwell, White House Homeland Security Council; and Bonnie Wilson, Jackson Municipal Airport Authority. Although these reviewers provided many con- structive comments and suggestions, they did not see the final draft of the report before its release. The review of this report was overseen by C. Michael Walton, Ernest H. Preface

Cockrell Centennial Chair in Engineering, University of Texas at Austin. Appointed by the National Research Council, he was responsible for making certain that an independent examination of this report was carried out in accordance with institutional procedures and that all review comments were carefully considered. The committee thanks Katherine Turnbull for her work in preparing this workshop summary report and extends special thanks to the Airport Cooperative Research Pro- gram Oversight Committee for providing funding support for the workshop along with the vision and encourage- ment that made the event the success that it was. 2 INTERAGENCY–AVIATION INDUSTRY COLLABORATION ON PLANNING FOR PANDEMIC OUTBREAKS
