The Director General's Message

Established as an autonomous body in July 1991, under the Public Enterprise Act of 1989, the Gambia Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) is entrusted with the crucial responsibility of regulating civil aviation and the air transport industry in the Gambia. We are committed to upholding international standards and ensuring the highest levels of safety, security, and efficiency in our aviation operations.

At GCAA, we work in alignment with the regulations and guidelines set forth by international organizations such as the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the African Civil Aviation Commission (AFCAC), and the Banjul Accord Group Aviation Safety Oversight Organization (BAGASOO). These esteemed organizations play pivotal roles in developing and implementing global aviation policies, standards, and best practices. By adhering to their regulations, we strive to enhance the safety and efficiency of our aviation sector and foster harmonious cooperation within the international aviation community.

Our dedicated team of professionals, across various departments and directorates, diligently carries out their responsibilities to ensure the smooth functioning of civil aviation in the Gambia. From regulating air navigation services to managing Banjul International Airport and maintaining crucial infrastructure and facilities, we are committed to delivering excellence in all aspects of our operations.

At GCAA, we understand the importance of collaboration and partnership in achieving our goals. We actively engage with international aviation organizations, government entities, industry stakeholders, and other civil aviation authorities to foster cooperation, exchange knowledge, and drive collective progress. These partnerships enable us to stay at the forefront of industry advancements, embrace innovation, and continuously enhance our services.

As we move forward, GCAA remains steadfast in its mission to provide a safe, secure, and efficient aviation environment. We are dedicated to the development of our national aviation industry, contributing to the growth of the Gambia’s economy, and positioning ourselves as a reliable and respected member of the international aviation community.

I know how to count on the motivation of my teams to succeed in this process and thus contribute to the gigantic project of stabilization and development of our country undertaken by the authorities.

A sustainable and balanced vision to build a civil aviation industry at the service of the Nation and its partners.

I believe in this vision!

Mr. Fansu Bojang, The Director General
