THE Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) is developing a masterplan to improve the country’s aviation industry.

“The masterplan will ensure safe, efficient, and sustainable air transport in the Philippines, aligned with international standards, while promoting inclusivity, economic growth, and comprehensive development,” said CAAP spokesman Eric Apolonio.

To achieve the goal, the CAAP will review the current state of civil aviation in the Philippines, including infrastructure, operations, regulatory framework, national and regional policy, and international standards.

“Once the review is complete, a benchmarking analysis will be conducted to compare the country’s aviation sector with those of other countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and the best practices observed in the European Union,” Apolonio said.

To ensure the successful development of the master plan, the Philippines will receive assistance from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), including the services of two experts.

The collaboration was agreed upon during a bilateral meeting with  Luc Tytgat, executive director of EASA, held during the 58th Conference of Director Generals of Civil Aviation in Asia in Bangladesh last October.
