High Level Policy Recommendations

About

Based on the output from the Study, to achieve these specific objectives, African States have the following high-level policy requirements:

  1. Sign the SAATM Solemn Commitment Letter (non SAATM States only)
  2. States either continue to bilaterally amend BASAs that are not YD compliant until full BASA compliance is achieved; or
  3. States sign a multilateral agreement (MASA) granting the free exercise of first to fifth freedom air traffic rights amongst the signatories and clearly abolish the need for future BASAs between them.
    1. All BASAs (or MASA) must comply with Articles 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the YD Text
    2. Grant, as a minimum, first to fifth freedom traffic rights to SAATM Member States
    3. Recognition of all designated African eligible airlines
  1. Adherence to ICAO Standards (60% Effective Implementation rate)
  2. Adherence to other best practice on Safety (e.g. IOSA)
  3. Fully implement all SAATM Concrete Measures
  4. Focus on adherence to SAATM Enablers to support a holistic aviation sector (improve visa openness, infrastructure – air and ground, etc)
“We must develop our continent without fear, for the future grows in us.”
