Ghana Civil Aviation Authority to split into two

The Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) is to separate its regulatory functions from the navigation services following a review of its Act (Act 678), which is expected to be approved by Parliament.

Mr William Amoako, Air Traffic Controller, who disclosed this to the Ghana News Agency on Saturday, said the separation was to create two separate entities to manage the two broad functions.

He said the decision was in fulfillment of the International Civil Aviation Organisation requirements.

Mr Amoako said the separation would ensure effectiveness and efficiency in the aviation industry saying: “you cannot be a referee and a player at the same time”.

He said another advantage would be that each entity would have its own budgetary allocation and enable it to focus on its core functions to make Ghana a first class nation in aviation services.
