Gearing up for 2010, 2nd Edition

Botswana is developing new regulations to provide the framework for a liberalised air transport market, which would lead to lifting of Air Botswana's exclusive concession for the operation of scheduled domestic and international air transport services. The move is part of a broader step towards implementation of the Yamoussoukro Decision, but also seen as vital in allowing private carriers to enter into the domestic market and/or regional scheduled service at a time when all eyes are on the region for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. There are chances that some airlines may decide to use airports in the region for parking. In addition, all of the four airports, SSKA, Maun, Francistown and Kasane, are being given a facelift that will bring them up to international standard. Mozambique has been doing its own aviation preparations.
