Director Generals Message

CAA has been putting in efforts to cope with the speed with which change in civil aviation activities are taking place regionally / globally. The expectations from the Government of Pakistan, International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), other related international bodies, customers, internal / external stakeholders, etc. have also grown rapidly in proportion to the pace at which improvements in aviation industry are taking place. Information Technology has a pivotal role to play in this era not only in ensuring enhanced performance standards in organizational responsibilities but also in terms of dissemination of information. I am extremely pleased to share that Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority, as part of its on-going improvement program and in pursuit of its Vision to be a World class service provider in the aviation industry, has revamped its official website. The objective has been to make it more informative, user-friendly and able to meet the information needs of the general public as well as Aviation professionals. It is hoped that the users would make maximum use of the website since dissemination of relevant information has been added as a special feature in the website to benefit the users. The most important aspect is the feedback mechanism through which I would like to encourage all users to send their feedback and comments aimed at the betterment of this website. This would enable us to bring about improvements in the website on a continuous basis. Although the good work done by the IT Branch of CAA in revamping the website needs to be acknowledged yet it needs to be ensured that it remains in a continually improvement mode so that it can be considered as one of the best websites in the not too distant future. It is my earnest desire to see CAA rising with each passing day and transform itself into one of the leading aviation organizations across the globe.[2] Director general message
