An Extremely large and ever-increasing group of Poles using the civil aviation services has a right to expect an offer that will satisfy their different needs, and will also provide the highest level of security. The Civil Aviation Authority must therefore act in the best interest of the public - through a multi-faceted safety control, protection of the rights of passengers and supervision over the aviation business.
In order to face the challenges posed by the development of civil aviation in Poland and in the world, We present to you the next Strategic Plan of the Civil Aviation Authority, this time for the 2015-2019 period. This document defines the most important objectives for the CAA’s mission and ways to achieve them. The plan has been developed on the basis of comprehensive analysis, taking into account all the identified needs of our stakeholders. It includes all essential areas of CAA’s operation, and it also includes aspects of ensuring efficiency of operation.
Strategic Plan of the Civil Aviation Authority is in line with the objectives set out in the 2020 Better Government strategy which was adopted in 2013 and which assumes improvement of the efficiency and effectiveness of public administration - for the benefit of citizens and through an extensive cooperation with them.
