The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Oman announced these impressive results during a press conference held at its headquarters in Muscat. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Global Aviation Safety Oversight Audit Program played a crucial role in assessing member states’ compliance with international aviation safety standards. Oman’s high ranking is a testament to the country’s rigorous efforts to align with these standards.

One of the most notable achievements in Oman’s journey to improved aviation safety compliance is its top global ranking in civil aviation legislation, scoring a perfect 100 percent, up from 85.71 percent.

This success reflects Oman’s dedicated efforts to ensure the safety and operational excellence of its aviation sector. The country’s significant rise in the compliance index demonstrates a comprehensive approach to aviation safety, including the implementation of robust safety measures, effective oversight mechanisms, and continuous improvement practices. These efforts have positioned Oman as a global leader in aviation safety, setting a benchmark for other countries to follow.

Overall, Oman’s impressive rise in the aviation safety compliance index is a testament to its commitment to achieving and maintaining the highest standards of aviation safety, benefiting not only the country but also the global aviation community.
