The UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) said yesterday it has completed the first phase of benchmarking studies to identify best practices in the civil aviation industry.

The studies are aimed at using new practices in drafting GCAA's future strategy and developing its organisational structure in line with it's long-term objective of making the UAE a "local and international hub" for aviation.

The project was supervised by the Strategic Planning and Corporate Excellence Department and was conducted across five key countries and institutions in the industry, a GCAA statement said.

It added that the study included civil aviation segments such as corporate structure, annual and daily air traffic, airspace area under control and growth in passenger traffic.

"The large-scale transformation programme aims at bringing a radical change in the processes of control over aviation operations and quality standards regarding safety and security. It also seeks to enhance GCAA's technical and supervisory capacities and promote cooperation with strategic clients," Saif Muhammed Al Suwaidi, Director General of the GCAA, said in a statement.
