Speaking to ANGOP, at the end of the visit of the Minister of Transport to the National Civil Aviation Institute (INAVIC) and TAAG, at the International Airport 4 de fevereieo, Rui Carreira said that the inspection is a routine activity, which makes it possible to assess the security oversight capacities of the Member States.

This year the airport security inspection is against acts of unlawful interference and the procedures adopted by the assessment  will enable the progressive verification of the State's level of compliance with standards and recommended practices, production of procedures, necessary documentation and analysis of factors related to airport security.

Due to a number of irregularities linked to air safety detected some 10 years ago during the last ICAO audit, INAVIC became part of this organization's safety list and has since been banned from operating in the European Union airspace.

Rui Carreira recalled that the certification process at Luanda airport terminates by the end of August and that INAVIC is already working on the certification of Catumbela airport, followed by others according to the requests of the managers.
