The GCAA, the aviation body submitted the blueprint to 48 local, regional and international stakeholders.
Director-General of GCAA, Egbert Field had noted that critical planning, as outlined by Phase 1 of the blueprint, is essential to the airports’ resuming international travel.

During this phase 1, Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) will be developed to guide health, safety and security at the airports and aboard flights in light of COVID-19.

Further, the GCAA has already drafted regulations that will bolster the SOPs by applying penalties to individuals and entities should there be any infractions.
