Comoros to recertify all local operators

Posted 18 April 2017 · Add Comment

The Comorian civil aviation authority will carry out a complete recertification of all commercial carriers based out of the Indian Ocean archipelago, reports ch-aviation.

"We have laid out a re-certification programme that will start from April 2017," said ANACM's Flight safety director and acting director general, Nassur Benali. 

As part of the certification process, backed by ICAO and which has been effected through newly enacted laws, commercial carriers have had to prove their financial soundness. 

Earlier this year, ANACM forced to AB Aviation to suspend all operations after it called in KMF224 million Comorian francs (USD480,000) worth of unpaid government taxes. While the issue was later resolved through the structuring of a payment plan, it brought severe criticism of the regulator's former DG, Jean-Marc Heintz, for pressing on with the suspension.

The CEO of AB Aviation, Ayad Bourhane, said he expects his airline to complete the process by the end of April following which commercial services are likely to resume.
