Source ICAO AIG

bea report on cotonu accident
BEA Report on Cotonu Accident
  • The investigation demonstrated that the lack of regulatory structure and safety oversight in certain states does not allow an appropriate level of safety for passengers and persons on ground
  • Those weaknesses are the results of many factors, mainly economical considerations and the conviction that flight safety rests primarily on the decisions taken in real time by the front line actors, i.e. the pilot in command
impact on industry
Impact on industry
  • Investigation conclusions supported by ICAO Safety Oversight Audit data
  • This situation jeopardizes the organization of international civil aviation, founded on trust and mutual acceptance of licenses and agreements
  • Many CAA are establishing “Black Lists” of carriers and countries
  • The unhealthy risk of seeing double or multiple standards in the industry is growing and threatening to disturb the air transport system and the economies of many States and regions
regional security challenges
Regional Security Challenges
  • Unresolved Arab-Israel conflict; inflames regional tensions & threats
  • Islamic radical militant groups; threatens safety and security globally
  • Iraq, Afghanistan & Pakistan instability and insurgency; active anti-government insurgencies considered a threat to regional security
regional security challenges13
