With the aim to enhance aviation safety in Africa, the EU-Africa Safety in Aviation (EU-ASA) project has been launched. The € five million initiative is managed by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in the framework of the Africa-EU Partnership and the Africa-Europe Alliance for Sustainable Investment and Jobs and will provide technical assistance to African partners.

 

Over the next three years, the project will assist African member states to establish an effective aviation safety oversight system. The EU-ASA project comes at the right time with the establishment of the Single African Air Transport Market (SAATM), one of the twelve flagship projects of the African Union Agenda 2063.
