Parliament has passed the Air Navigation Services Agency Bill, creating an autonomous and independent entity out of the current Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA).

The separation of the air navigation and regulatory functions of GCAA is in line with international best practice in aviation and recommendations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to ensure that the GCAA does not act as an operator and regulator at the same time.

The Bill was passed yesterday after it was read the third time.

Majority leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu moved a motion to take the bill through a second consideration stage which was seconded by the Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu.

The Bill was subsequently taken through the final reading and passed.

Aviation Minister, Joseph Kofi Adda, said the passage of the Bill is another giant step towards enhancing Ghana’s aviation sector.
