Madagascar: Malagasy airports towards compliance with international safety standards




The eight airports of Madagascar after an audit of the structures of the Organisation of International Civil Aviation (ICAO) were deemed non-conforming to international standards for airport security.
 
"ICAO auditors found a lot of discrepancies between international safety standards and should act to ensure that Madagascar is not hit by sanctions" said, Razafy Robert Jean, Director General of Civil Aviation of Madagascar (ACM).
 
In the wake of this report, the Civil Aviation of Madagascar signed a concession contract to ensure the safety of the installations across the island airports.
 
The chosen company is specialised in the monitoring and the deployment of dog and handler teams in the heart of sensitive airport areas.
Hundreds of surveillance cameras and other X-ray scanners for luggage and body detection devices for passengers will thus be commissioned soon in the airports of the Island.
 
Police Dog brigades responsible for signaling the presence of explosives and other prohibited goods also complement the new safety device of Malagasy airports, as shown in the Midi Madagasikara newspaper.
