Threats against civil aviationThreats against civil aviation are becoming more unpredictable and difficult to mitigate as evident from the recent attack on Zaventem Airport in Brussels, says the Director of Air Transport in the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), Boubacar Djibo.

Djibo said this during the official opening of a five-day Ministerial Conference on Aviation Security and Facilitation in Africa in Windhoek Monday. Representatives from all 54 African Union (AU) Commission member States are attending the conference.

The attack on the Belgian capital’s airport on March 22, 2016 in the form of two bomb explosions resulted in a lock-down for about 12 days and is expected to reduce airport capacity for at least three months, he added.

He said protecting the aviation mode of transport needed a holistic approach and a multi-disciplinary approach involving all governmental departments and stakeholders.

It was crucial for aviation security and facilitation entities to work hand in hand and to be fully integrated, he noted.
