Swaziland to become home to SASO

Posted 14 May 2015 · Add Comment

Swaziland is to become home to a Southern African aviation safety organization covering the whole of the Southern African Development Community (SADC).



SADC Aviation Safety Organisation (SASO), will be responsible for overseeing that all safety precautions in the aviation industry are strictly adhered to. 


The organisation formerly had its base in Botswana.


The move came as the result of an ICAO audit on Swaziland, said Swaziland Civil Aviation Authority (SWACAA) director general Solomon Dube. The country has put right issues that arose in the 2007 audit and is now ready to host organisations like SASO – demonstrated when the SASA conference took place in Swaziland for the first time and enabvled SASO officials to see what was available to them there.
