CAA International (CAAi), the technical cooperation arm of the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA), has completed an 18-month advisory programme, providing UK CAA aviation regulatory support to the Ministry of Transport, Communication and Tourism (MTCT) of Suriname.

In partnership with IATA Consulting, UK CAA experts and associates have been on the ground in Suriname, helping to modernise the country’s civil aviation legislation, institutional, organisational and regulatory framework, to best support aviation growth in Suriname, driven by an expanding ecotourism sector.

Under the programme, CAAi reviewed and advised on a modernised civil aviation act, creation of an independent air accident investigation body, service provision separation (aerodrome and ANSP) from the regulator, including recommendations for scope, size as well as funding for each entity.

Vera Jakimovska, Head of Operations for CAAi said, “Suriname is a beautiful country with talented aviation individuals. The State took an important step and recognised the importance of safe and sustainable aviation for its economic growth and international recognition. CAAi provided options to Suriname that would help achieve effective and affordable institutional arrangements in compliance with international regulatory standards. Suriname’s next step would be to drive forward the implementation and recommended changes and we wish our colleagues in Suriname all the best on that journey.

After the project was completed, a spokesperson from MTCT said, “We have learned a lot from the UK CAA, especially from the team members and the engagement and support of ICAO SAM Regional Office. Apart from the great learning experience for all Suriname staff involved, the recommendations and advice provided by UK CAA will undoubtedly help the Suriname civil aviation sector move in the right direction”.
