Cameroon meets international aviation security standards (ICAO)

Cameroonian minister of transport, Jean Ernest Ngalle Bibehe (photo), announced that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has transmitted the confidential aviation security audit report, conducted in Cameroon last April 18-27 as part of the universal security audit program (Usap).

Results showed that the country has achieved 68.85% effective implementation of an aviation safety oversight system, compared to 51.12% in 2015, an improvement by 16.70%. The implementation of the Convention on International Civil Aviation is 70.96% compared to 63.38% in 2015, an improvement by 7.58%. Security and facilitation standards are 46.79% met compared to 31.31% in 2015, an improvement by 15.48%.

“These positive results, achieved thanks to the significant human, material and financial resources implemented […] shows the actions undertaken by Cameroon to improve the implementation of civil aviation security standards are paying off”, Jean Ernest Ngalle Bibehe said. “They (results) are all the more encouraging as they are obtained in a context of transition where corrective actions are only completed at Yaoundé-Nsimalen International Airport and are being implemented at Douala, Garoua and Maroua-Salak International Airports,” he added.
