Antigua and Barbuda has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the International Civil Aviation Organization.

The memorandum covers regulations stipulated by the IACO’s Universal Safety Audit Programme on its Continuous Monitoring Approach.

It covers the responsibilities of member states in providing information in a “transparent manner” and other issues.

“The ongoing relationship between Antigua and Barbuda and the ICAO signifies the importance of maintaining optimum levels of safety and security for our nationals and our country that is heavily dependent upon tourism,” said Civil Aviation Minister John Maginley. “We are committed and will continue to strive to meet all aviation safety standards in a manner that is consistent with international regulations.”

The objectives of the programme are to promote global aviation safety through auditing contracting states on a regular basis.

Peter Abraham is the oversight officer responsible for safety and security issues within the Ministry of Civil Aviation.
