Airports of Honduras Will be Evaluated

To inspect the airworthiness and air navigation procedures at the nation’s airports, ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) will visit Honduras in November.

ICAO is responsible for assessing the state of Honduras in aeronautics and air terminal operations.

“According to information provided to us, representatives of the ICAO are from 7 to 13 November in Honduras to assess the country’s airports, airlines and inspect the DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation),” said Ovid Aguilar, an airline representative.

Most important for aviation authorities is to prevent deficiencies which are evaluated in points. Countries lacking enter the blacklist SSC (Significant Safety Concern).

“It is necessary to avoid a deficiency, as this list is published worldwide and developed countries recommend not to fly to these countries due to lack of security in aviation,” said Aguilar.

The international airport manager Golosón, Abraham Mendez, said he is working according to aviation standards and procedures. “The last time the ICAO representatives visited the country was in 2008, so we are prepared to carry out inspections,” said Mendez.

During the visit will assess the country’s four international airports: Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, La Ceiba and Roatan.
