Air transport

Things to KNOW

  • Air transport offers LLDCs a means of avoiding the transit problems associatedwith overland and overseas freightmovements. Only very high-value-added and low-bulk commodities can support the costs of airfreight rates.

Things to DO

  • Expand and improve physical infrastructure facilities (aircraft, runway, air navigation systems, airport handling and storage).
  • Liberalize policies regarding the granting of traffi c rights for freight on scheduled services and lift any restrictions on cargo charter fl ight.
  • Improve the effectiveness of existing freight capacity.
  • Promote establishment and implementation of relevant transport agreements at the regional, sub-regional and national levels.
  • Expand training programmes at the national and sub-regional levels.
  • Development partners should provide technical support and technology transfer towards infrastructure development and maintenance of airports and air transport systems.
