The Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) recently came together to commemorate their remarkable accomplishments, celebrating their recognition and accolade as the best State-Owned Enterprise at the 2nd edition of the Public Enterprises League Table Award (PELT).

The ceremony, held at the International Conference Center on October 11, 2023, also saw the GCAA securing the second position as the best Entity of the Year.

The event, organized by the Ministry of Public Enterprises in collaboration with the State Interests and Governance Authority (SIGA), aimed to acknowledge the diligence and success of various entities while motivating others to continue their dedicated efforts.

The GCAA, as the regulator and air navigation provider for Ghana’s aviation sector, triumphed over strong competition from around 64 State-Owned Enterprises to claim the prestigious title of the best SOE of the year.

Renowned for its excellence in both domestic and international aviation, the GCAA consistently raises Ghana’s profile in the aviation industry. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) recognizes the GCAA as a leading state in the sub region, a testament to its dedication and performance.

Ghana achieved an impressive Effective Implementation (EI) rate of 89.89% in its last safety assessment, marking the highest among African states after ICAO’s Coordinated Validation Mission (ICVM). Furthermore, at the recent ICAO 41st Assembly in September 2022, Ghana’s outstanding performance led to its election to the ICAO Council, securing a two-year term on the organization’s highest body.

Ghana’s commitment to innovation and safety was further underscored when, on November 7, 2022, the country received the inaugural ‘Flight Safety Foundation David Morrison Innovation Award.’ This recognition lauded Ghana’s leadership in developing a groundbreaking drone delivery system for COVID-19 vaccines and vital medical supplies, showcasing the nation’s dedication to innovative solutions in the face of global challenges.

The GCAA remains unwavering in its commitment to preserving the safety and security of Ghana’s airspace, making the Accra Flight Information region one of the safest globally.

The GCAA attributes these achievements to the unwavering support and collaboration of the Government, especially the Ministry of Transport, as well as the dedication of stakeholders, the Board, and the entire GCAA team. These accomplishments stand as a testament to the collective efforts and contributions of these stakeholders in the continued success of the GCAA.
