Sierra Leone Aviation Authority Requests Flight Reschedules

In a recent development, the Sierra Leone Civil Aviation Authority (SLCAA) has urged airlines to reschedule their flights. This decision comes in response to a nationwide curfew imposed by the government following an attack on a military barracks by unidentified gunmen.


The Incident

The government declared a nationwide curfew after assailants attacked the armory at the Wilberforce barracks in the early hours of Sunday. The assailants were rebuffed by the country's security forces. In light of these events, the SLCAA took immediate action, advising airlines to adjust their flight schedules accordingly.

The SLCAA's Role

The Sierra Leone Civil Aviation Authority has been actively involved in the development and regulation of the country's aviation sector. It has been recognized for its outstanding performance at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Universal Safety. The SLCAA has also been instrumental in negotiating agreements with the Board of Airlines, resulting in the suspension of all new charges, originally set to commence on December 1, 2023.
