Parliament has passed into law an amendment of the Ghana Civil Aviation Act 906 (2016) to improve safety and strengthen security in the aviation industry.

A statement by the Ministry of Aviation and copied to the GNA said the sector Minister Kofi Adda, who moved for the amendment to be passed, explained that the Bill was to ensure that Ghana became compliant with the regulations of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

Mr. Adda said though the sector is doing well by global standards and is ranking very high, the amendment would help to address the deficiencies identified in numerous assessments of the structures and operational systems of air navigational services as well as ensure the effective implementation of the state safety programmes and accident investigations.
