About AFCAC

The African Civil Aviation Commission (AFCAC) was created by the Constitutional Conference convened by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the then Organization of African Unity (OAU,now African Union AU) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in 1964. AFCAC was fully established and began functionning in 1969 and on 11 May, 1978 became an OAU Specialized Agency in the field of Civil Aviation.


From inception, AFCAC was technically, administratively and financially managed by ICAO through African member State’s contributions. AFCAC became autonomous from ICAO management on 1st January 2007.


AFCAC today comprises 54 African States and is managed through a triennial Plenary (consisting of all member States). The Bureau is made up of a President, 5 Vice-Presidents (representing Northern, Western, Eastern, Central and Southern Africa Regions) and the Coordinator of the African Group at the ICAO Council. The Secretariat is headed by a Secretary General.


AFCAC’s vision is to “foster a safe, secure, efficient, cost-effective, sustainable and environmentally friendly Civil Aviation industry in Africa”. The Third meeting of the African Ministers in charge of civil aviation matters which was held on 11th March 2007, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia entrusted AFCAC with the attributions and responsibilities of the Executing Agency for the implementation of the Yamoussoukro Decision (YD). The Resolution was endorsed by the Assembly of the Heads of State and Government in Accra, Ghana on 29th June 2007. To accommodate these added responsibilities, AFCAC adopted a new Constitution at a meeting of Plenipotentiaries which was held in Dakar, Senegal on 16 December 2009 and the Constitution came into force on 11th May 2010 .
