The Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe (CAAZ) has committed itself to regularly adjust the national civil aviation security programme to address emerging treats and also meet the country’s aviation security aspirations.

In a world where the global aviation industry continues to face threats such as hijacking of flights, cyber terrorism and chemical attacks, the domestic civil aviation body says it has prioritised a sound aviation security regulatory framework and implementation of prescribed international standards.

CAAZ chief aviation security officer, Mr Gilbert Chimoto told Zimbabwe National Defense University students currently on a study tour in Victoria Falls that the authority is committed to frequently review the civil security programme in line with the changing environment.

Zimbabwe National Defense University interim vice chancellor, Air Vice Marshal Michael Tedzani Moyo said the institution is pleased with CAAZ’s efforts in promoting safe and efficient aviation sector.

Zimbabwe which is an International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) member state ratified the Chicago Convention in 1981 demonstrating its desire to undertake aviation security to the highest degree and complying with international standards.
