Gabon’s Léon-Mba international airport in Libreville has become the first airport in Central Africa to be certified by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
On Saturday May, 8th, a ceremony was organized and the certification was handed over by ICAO after two years of work and audits on the quality and safety of the airport platform infrastructure.

In preparations for getting the certification, Gabon focused on investing in the renewal of equipment, the safety of the airstrip, the marking and especially the training of its teams.

The performance manager Serge Rodrigue Agaya, hopes that the certification will attract new companies as he guarantees safety and security standards. He said that for customers and other partners, it is a mark of confidence in the various operations carried out at airports. He then added that, some companies well listed on the market can make flights from their platform because they also guarantee safety and security standards.

ICAO Director for West and Central Africa ,Prosper Zo’o Minto, urges other countries in the region to learn from Gabon, aviation being interconnected.
