Angola: Transport Minister Stresses Aeronautical Servitude Regulation

Luanda — The Angolan minister of Transports, Augusto Tomás, said Wednesday in Luanda that the General Regulation on the Aeronautical Servitude Plan, recently approved by Cabinet Council, will adjust the rules of the sector to international standards.

Speaking at the end of the 7th ordinary session of the Cabinet Council, the Transport minister said that the document will allow a review and update of a document that has been in force for almost 50 years.

He noted that during that period, the air sector recorded major changes in the domestic and international plan, a fact that calls for adjustments to the law.

Augusto Tomás underlined that the document approved at Wednesday's meeting will enshrine current norms on the easements of airport perimeters, noise protection and aid to air navigation, under the Civil Aviation Law.

The General Regulations on Aeronautical Easement Plan aims to ensure greater safety to air navigation, persons and property in the vicinity of airfields and support civil aviation facilities.
