4. Impact of the measures on the revenues
5. Recommendations
   In 1989 in the majority of the African
    countries, issues related to civil aviation
    Security based on the norms and practices
    recommended by Annex 17 of the Chicago
    Convention were not included in the
    documents or on a daily basis
   In 1989 the explosion of an airplane from a
    French airline at Tenere in Niger at that
    time:UTA meant a considerably decrease in
    Security for the French speaking countries
    in Africa
   France put a vast program in action:
      Training of the first instructors

      Supply of Equipments

      Training on the radioscopic image
 Adaptation to the terminal infrastructure to
  Security standards
 The implementation of the first evaluation
  on Security and
 The elaboration of documents based on
  safety and security issues
   In 1999, ICAO in collaboration with AFCAC started the
    training of African experts within the framework of an
    agreement between France and ICAO
   Nowadays there are many African experts on aviation
    Security from AFCAC (African Civil Aviation
    Commission)
   Within the same organization, the instructors and auditors
    have been certified by ICAO
   In addition, recently AVSEC managers have been trained
   With the purpose of reinforcing security at
    regional level, UEMOA has adopted a
    common program for air transport for its
    state-members. The experts of the region
    have created a common regulation
    procedure known as “Regulation 11”
   The main objective of this regulation is to
    assure Security for passengers, crew
    members, personnel on ground, people in
    general in relation to topics concerned with
    protection against illicit acts to the state-
    members.
Brief approach on the audit results about safety and
security in Africa



   The audits of aviation Security for the
    African States carried out by ICAO as part
    of the universal ICAO Audit program
    (USAP) revealed the general problems as
    follows:
   The Inexistence of an adequate legal
    framework (the old national legislation did
    not take into account the aviation Security
    issues)
 Inexistence of aviation Security programs
  (National, Airports, Quality Management,
  Training)
 Security equipments, if they exist, are not
  used properly, not well maintained and not
  correctly calibrated
 Security Charges which are not allocated to
  aviation Security as a priority
 High Turnover of Security personnel
 Security Issues as Secondary concerns for
  the personnel
 Terminal infrastructure are not well adapted
 Conflict of responsibility assignments and
  related zones
 Rough implementation of standardized
  exploitation procedures and measures
  where they are implemented
   3. Measures to face the aviation Security
    requirements: Case study, Cotonou
    International Airport
Introduction to the Cotonou
Airport
 It is a small airport in a small country
 It is located on he Western African Coast
  between other two close airports: Lagos
  (Nigeria) and Lome (Togo)
 It is managed by ASECNA through a
  specific agreement held with the Benin
  Government
 The infrastructure are being renovated and
  expanded to face the increase in traffic.
 It is a natural hub towards Central Africa.
 18 airlines companies serve this airport
 It is facing an increasing traffic flow

    Security Measures in place at
    Cotonou International Airport
 Legal framework for the different Security
  measures has been in place
 The access control and the
  supervision/screening have been moved
  from the police sector to the private sector
 A regular consultation scheme has been in
  place to control the airport management
    Security Measures in Place at
    Cotonou International Airport
 Planning and execution of training for the
  personnel and the raise in consciousness
 Separation of the traffic of passengers
  (transportation of passengers by bus)
 The number of access control points has
  been reduced
 Implementation of safety licenses totally
  related to safety and security
Impacts of the measures on the
revenues
 Along with the favorable political
  environment of the country, the serious
  implementation on the Security measures
  has:
 Attracted more airlines companies
 Increased the frequency of flights
 Increased the frequency of commercial
  activities; thus, an increased in the sales
Impact of the measures on the
revenues
 Record of the demands for the creation of
  new activities
 reducing the airport charges by the
  perception of a Security charge ensures an
  increase of the revenues
Impact of the measures on the
revenues
   Generally, there are two types of charges:
     Aeronautics: attributed exclusively to

      traffic
     Non-aeronautics (charges collected on

      sales revenues). In 2007, they represented
      20% of the total revenue of the Cotonou
      Airport.

Impact of the measures on the
revenues
   Although this outcome is modest, it is very
    significant. For the same period, they
    followed the same evolution of the traffic.
    Or the evolution is, among others, related to
    the efficiency of the Security measures for
    the last three years.
Recommendations
 Establish a Security Charge related
  exclusively to aviation Security.
 It is necessary that the airport management
  assign a well trained person responsible for
  Security. This implies the coordination for
  implementing safety and security measures
  to facilitate the circulation flow within
  terminals.
Recommendations
   The airport management has to implement a
    follow-up mechanism and analysis
    procedure of the extra revenue coming
    from aeronautics, that is, Security measures
    to apply on the airport platform.
