Reunion Overflight Permit Regulation and Procedures

If you're an operator of a business jet or a commercial airline with plans to fly over Reunion airspace, obtaining a Reunion Overflight Permit from the Reunion Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is mandatory. As a flight dispatcher, it's important to have a good understanding of the requirements for obtaining this permit, including the fact that the issuing of an overflight permit confirms that there is no political or security objection to your airline, aircraft, or country of origin/destination and that there are no outstanding navigation fees due to the ATC authority.

  1. What are CAA's working hours, including whether they are open on weekends?
  2. Which aircraft documents must be submitted with the overflight request?
  3. Are there any fees charged by the CAA for processing the permit?
  4. What is the official validity period of the overflight permit, as determined by the CAA?
  5. How can the Reunion air navigation bill be obtained, either through IATA or a local agent?
The process for obtaining a reunion overflight permit can vary depending on the type of aircraft, the purpose of the flight, and other factors. Generally, the operator or owner of the aircraft will need to submit an application to the French Civil Aviation Authority or its designated representative, providing details about the flight, the aircraft, the crew, and other relevant information. The application may also require payment of a fee. It is important to note that the process for obtaining a reunion overflight permit can take time, so it is recommended that the application be submitted well in advance of the planned flight. Additionally, the French Civil Aviation Authority may impose certain restrictions or conditions on the permit, such as specific routing or altitude requirements.

We suggest reaching out to the Civil Aviation Authority of Reunion or a third-party aviation service provider to obtain more specific and up-to-date information about the overflight permit process in Reunion.
