Aviation Nigeria

Nigeria has been nominated by the executive of the Civil Air Navigation Organisation in Africa to host its first regional conference.

The conference billed for Abuja, is to hold between October 7 and October 11, 2013.

This was disclosed in Lagos on Thursday by the Regional Director, Africa Affairs, Ms. Boni Dibante, when she paid a visit to the headquarters of Nigerian Airspace Management Agency in Lagos.

The conference, which is intended to review air navigation safety globally, especially in Africa, will also chart the way forward for aviation safety as well as develop strategies for improvement.

A statement from the NAMA quoted Dibante as describing the forthcoming event as historic, being the first to be organised by the newly established CANSO Africa Regional Office.

He urged NAMA leadership to strive towards a successful outing.

Participants at the conference would be drawn from the 11 African members, other global members as well as ICAO and industry regulators around the world, he said.

The Managing Director of NAMA, Mr. Nnamdi Udoh, commended Dibante for “doing a great job with CANSO in Africa by creating awareness and ensuring that safety regulations are adhered to within the continent.”
