Cyprus DCA to work with CAAi to enhance aviation oversight

Posted 13 July 2017 · Add Comment

The Cyprus Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) has appointed CAA International (CAAi), the state-to-state advisory arm of the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA) to provide the DCA with technical safety oversight and certification support.



CAAi’s assistance will be focused on flight operations and airworthiness.

As one of Europe’s top tourist destinations and a large majority of visitors arriving to the island nation by air, continually enhancing civil aviation standards is a top priority for Cyprus’ government. CAAi will act as an Advisor to Cyprus DCA and the support will include flight operation inspections and airworthiness surveillance of aircraft registered in Cyprus, Air Operator Certificate holders and approved maintenance organisations.

Matthew Margesson, Head of International Development of CAAi, said: “We are delighted to be working with the Department of Civil Aviation in Cyprus once again. With just under nine million passengers flying through Cyprus each year*, while over 2.5 million fly from and to Cyprus through UK airports, it is important to us that not only UK travellers but passengers from across the world can enjoy the high standard of safety aviation oversight when travelling to and from Cyprus."

The project is expected to run for a period of one year.
