The Decision on the Implementation of the Yamoussoukro Declaration concerning the Liberalisation of Access to Air Transport Markets in Africa (hereinafter the 'Decision') is a major and far reaching regulatory development in the history of African civil aviation, both in its depth and magnitude. It creates an ambitious framework for a regional regulatory regime that would liberalise the African skies, when fully implemented. Nevertheless, constructing a liberalised intra-African air transport market, of necessity, is a difficult and evolutionary process, especially so when one considers the socio-political context of Africa and the difficulties of bringing together a continent as diverse as Africa. Given that the Decision, at this stage, does nothing more than start the process of establishing a minimum set of initial rules. These rules, inevitably, will require additional refinement to make the effort of the liberalization process more complete.
