The airport in the city of Bata, economic capital of Equatorial Guinea, will soon have a modern aviation computer system and a time control centre, according to the Agency for Aerial Navigation Safety in Africa and Madagascar (ASECNA).
ASECNA announced this international acquisition bid for the equipment for Bata, nine days after the Head of State, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, met on 15th May with the new director of the agency, Moussa Mohamed, in Malabo, to speak about the services provided by the body to our nations, after having left the blacklist of countries which do not meet the aeronautical service regulations for the continent and the world.
Since last year, Malabo has the ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) system, which was also installed in another ten national capitals, in order to significantly improve air security in Africa.
ASECNA was created in 1959, and brings together Equatorial Guinea, Senegal, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, South Africa, the Comoros Islands, Congo, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Guinea Bissau, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Chad, Togo, and France.
