BAGAIA and Guinea

The airline industry contributes significantly to the economic development of Guinea. It is essential to support business, commerce, tourism, culture and social activities.


The main objectives of AGAC are therefore to provide an environment favorable to the growth of the aviation industry and to ensure the safety of flight operations through:


  • the adoption of policies that encourage the sustainable development of aviation in Guinea
  • improving safety and security oversight
  • human resources development
  • the development of aeronautical infrastructures
  • the growing participation of the private sector in air transport activities


In order to comply with the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), AGAC has developed its basic aeronautical legislation (Civil Aviation Code) and aeronautical regulations which empower the conduct and surveillance civil aviation activities in Guinea.


In Africa, with the adoption of the Yamoussoukro Decision in 1999, there was the liberalization of access to air transport markets, the harmonization of air transport policies and the free exchange of traffic rights.


AGAC grants licenses and transport permits to Airlines that meet the eligibility criteria set out in the Yamoussoukro Decision as well as those set by the laws and regulations of AGAC.


At the sub-regional level, Guinea belongs to:


  • to the Banjul Accord Group (BAG). To this end, AGAC adheres to the principles of the harmonization of aeronautical regulations within its member states, the establishment of a common safety oversight body (BAGASOO) and an investigation body. sub-regional accidents (BAGAIA)
  • to the Roberts Flight Information Region (Roberts FIR) whose mission is to provide air traffic control over the upper airspace of its three member states


The training of AGAC Inspectors was provided in the various aviation safety fields for the certification and continuous surveillance of air operators. This training is based on the ITS (Inspector Training System) requirements of the Banjul Accord Group (BAG).


In conclusion, AGAC is part of the global aeronautical culture which makes international civil aviation a chain in which the links that constitute the States must have the same solidity in terms of safety and security.
