Bahamas: D’Aguilar: Bahamas very close to monetizing airspace

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The Bahamas is close to finally monetizing its airspace, according to Tourism and Aviation Minister Dionisio D’Aguilar, who noted that legislation debated in Parliament yesterday seeks to make that possible.

D’Aguilar led debate on a compendium of bills, namely the Civil Aviation Bill, 2021, the Civil Aviation Authority Bahamas Bill, 2021 and the Bahamas Air Navigation Services Authority Bill, 2021.

The Free Town MP noted that introduction of the Air Navigation Services Authority Bill — with the insertion of the new terminology of Bahamas Administered Airspace, Bahamas Aircraft and Bahamas Territory — provides The Bahamas with more economic control over its sovereign airspace and expands its aircraft registry capabilities. Section 5 of the bill allows the new civil aviation authority to enter into arrangements or partnerships with respect to the air navigation service.
