Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority (SCAA)

The SCCA is the body responsible in providing services in areas of airport operations, air navigation, alerting and search. It is also involve in air transport planning, regulatory and safety oversight. SCAA is wholly owned by the Government.

The Authority’s vision is to become an Indian Ocean gateway above and beyond Africa. Its mission is to deliver on their promise of highest standards in safety, security and quality of service for the customers.

SCAA plans to achieve this by providing a balanced and cost effective approach to safety oversight, ensuring strategic planning for air transport development and promotion in Seychelles, ensuring safe, secure, smooth and efficient operations and high standards of facilitation and services in respect of” of passengers, aircraft and cargo, ensuring a safe and secure operating environment for aircraft, their passengers and crew, airport employees and other airport users, ensuring maintenance of environmental standards is in accordance with national and international requirements.                    

SCAA has reached a crucial momentum in its development whereby it needs to expand rapidly to meet the demands that it will face over the next few years. This is due to a culmination of different strategies deployed by Seychelles Government over the past five years to facilitate the development of tourism, air transport and trade. SCAA requires a sum of at least SR500 million to invest in much needed infrastructure development over the next five years.

SCAA is made up of the following operating divisions:

  • Regulatory and safety oversight
  • Air Transport Planning
  • Service provision in the following areas:

 Airport Operations

Air Navigation Services, Alerting and Search & Rescue Services

  • Business Development

For the future, SCAA is considering public-private partnerships options. There is a need for SCAA to adopt a more commercial approach to investments and target some quick-wins ventures.
