Flight management provider Hadid International Services has expanded its network in Africa with the establishment of a new office for full supervisory capabilities at Djibouti International Airport. The unsettled political situation in the region, which has driven gains in the number of flights landing in and overflying the small African nation, prompted its Civil Aviation Authority to designate Hadid to take control of all permit requests.

Since the beginning of the year, Hadid has served its customers more than 350 times in Djibouti, supporting them with procedures such as obtaining overfly and landing permits, handling services, refueling, hotels and airport transfers. The country, located on the travel routes between the Middle East and Africa, is well positioned as a technical stop. In 2014, Djibouti International handled 250,000 passengers on 7,000 scheduled stops, as well as 1,200 non-scheduled landings.

The news follows recent announcements of Dubai-based Hadid offering business aviation supervisory activities in Ethiopia, Niger, Algeria, Kenya and the Republic of Congo, toward its goal of covering the entire continent.
