ICAO and the African Airlines Association were pleased to host a second meeting on aviation statistics.
 
The objective of this meeting was to:
  1. Give hands-on training to airlines and airport entities covering different facets of planning, forecasting and financial management.
     
  2. Emphasize the importance of reliable statistical and accounting data from both a qualitative and quantitative point of view and to demonstrate its role in improving competitiveness and efficiency of the related stakeholders namely: airlines, airports, air navigation services providers (ANS) and the regulator.
     
  3. Encourage States to fulfill their obligations under Articles 54, 55 and 67 of the Convention on International Civil Aviation, Doc 7300 (the Chicago Convention) and to ensure success in the implementation of AFCAC Decision S13-3 on African Air Transport Statistics.
     
  4. Familiarize participants about the role of the European Co-ordination Centre for Accident and Incident Reporting Systems (ECCAIRS) and its effectiveness in monitoring and analyzing accident data.
     
  5. Encourage States and reporting entities (air carriers, airports and air navigation service providers) in the region to participate in the ICAO Statistics Programme as well as to make use of the new Integrated Statistical Database (ISDB) now available on-line via the internet.
