Africa-Indian Ocean: Representatives of civil aviation meet in Lomé to discuss runway security in the region

(Togo First) - Many civil aviation representatives, from Africa and the Indian Ocean, are currently in Lomé to share their experience and knowledge, to make tarmacs safer in these two geographical zones.

Organized by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the US agency regulating and monitoring civil aviation, the meeting aims at identifying security risks relative to runway incursions at airports. 

Besides, participants will leverage their mutual skills and knowledge to make sure all countries in the two above-mentioned zones achieve standards that align with recommendations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

Elimination of the concerned risks, according to Col. Dokissime Gnama Lata, MD of Togo’s national civil aviation agency (ANAC), requires taking “adequate measures, such as having a fenced, safe and secure runway, qualified staff and implementing strict protocols between airport’s various departments.”

Let’s note that out of all 144 countries of the Africa-Indian Ocean region, only 30, Togo included, presently meet ICAO’s runway security standards.
