Cape Verde accommodates investigative agency on air accidents

Cape Verde is to accommodate the investigative agency on accidents for the Banjul Agreement Group (BAG), made up of seven countries from West Africa which defend the liberalisation of the airspace in the sub-region and in Africa, official sources told PANA in Praia on Wednesday.

Cape Verde, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone, which belong to the BAG, seek to implement and speed up the Yamoussoukro Treaty which aims at liberalising the airspace in Africa.

Cape Verde’s Civil Aviation Agency (AAC), an entity which regulates the air activity in the country, is pleased about this choice, stressing that the archipelago therefore becomes an “example for civil aviation not only at a regional level but also at a continental level”.

For AAC, the fact that Cape Verde accommodates the investigative Agency on air accidents for BAG “constitutes an important step in the tightening of security for air commercial operations in the West African region,” especially as this contributes to reduce air crashes.
