The Simón Bolívar International Airport Institute (IAIM) is strengthening its application of aeronautical international norms that are certified by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
Under the administration of the National Institute of Civil Aviation (INAC) and the Ministry of People’s Power for Public Works and Housing, the Simon Bolívar International Airport will present its progress in two strategic areas related to Annexes 9 and 17 of air international regulations on facilities and safety.
The ICAO certification will take place on June 20th and 27th, when the implemented measures and subsequent results will be evaluated.
The IAIM Facilitation Committee will be in charge of these putting these measures into effect. The IAIM was created to mediate between airport agencies, as well as airlines and license holders in order to comply with the suggestions of the ICAO, and to design mechanisms to optimize services.
Airport safety manuals and procedures will be also explained to the ICAO representatives, who will review the airport’s main checkpoints to verify the application and efficiency of these programs.
The correct application of these annexes in the Simón Bolívar International Airport guarantees safe flights for passengers, as will be affirmed by ICAO international observers during their visit.
The Bolivarian government works on designing strategies to benefit Venezuelans who increasingly use air transportation as a reliable alternative to travel in the country and overseas.
