Sao Tome Overflight Permit and Ground Handling

If you're an operator of a business jet or a commercial airline with plans to fly over Sao Tome airspace, obtaining a Sao Tome Overflight Permit from the Sao Tome 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. Some key points to keep in mind include:

  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 Sao Tome air navigation bill be obtained, either through IATA or a local agent?
São Tomé and Príncipe is an island nation located in the Gulf of Guinea, off the western coast of Central Africa. If you need to fly over or land in São Tomé and Príncipe, you will require an overflight permit. The São Tomé and Príncipe Civil Aviation Authority is the government agency responsible for issuing overflight permits in the country. To obtain an overflight permit, you will need to submit a request to the Civil Aviation Authority, providing them with details of your flight, including your aircraft registration, operator information, flight itinerary, and purpose of your flight, The application process can take time, so it's recommended to apply well in advance of your flight. It's also important to note that São Tomé and Príncipe is a member of the African Civil Aviation Commission (AFCAC), and the AFCAC requires all flights within Africa to have an AFCAC flight permit. Therefore, if your flight is originating from another African country, you will also need to obtain an AFCAC permit in addition to the São Tomé and Príncipe overflight permit.

We recommend contacting a reputable aviation service provider or consulting with the Sao Tome CAA directly for the most up-to-date information and assistance with the overflight permit application process.

Travel Information :

São Tomé and Príncipe, an African island nation close to the equator, is part of a volcano chain featuring striking rock and coral formations, rainforests and beaches. On the larger island, São Tomé, is the Lagoa Azul lagoon. Ôbo Natural Park, a biodiverse jungle preserve, covers much of São Tomé and is distinguished by Pico Cão Grande, a skyscraperlike volcanic rock.

  • Obo National Park
Otherworldly and awesome, the Obo National Park is one that rarely fails to take the breath away. Covering a vast area of more than 230 square kilometers on the southern side of Sao Tome, the great wilderness ranges from salt-washed mangroves on the shore to virgin Atlantic rainforests in the highlands. And what highlands they are! Crowned by the mighty, needle-like bluff of Pico Cao Grande, the park soars straight into the clouds.
  • Santo António
The capital of tiny little Principe – the smaller half of this archipelago – is a pint-sized town on the north shore of the island, and home to the bulk of its population (and that’s just above only 1,000 individuals!). A sleepy place of age-stained colonial edifices and mud-splattered pueblo-style homes, it’s got a certain authentic charm.
  • Santana
A popular spot for beach lovers and luxury seekers in search of Sao Tome’s fabled cocktail of sand, sea and sun on the Atlantic, the little town of Santana spills down to the shoreline on the eastern edge of the island, emerging from the lanky palms of the jungle and the volcanic hills like some forgotten village in the land of Robinson Crusoe.
  • Monte Café
You’ll have to head deep into the volcanic mountain ranges that rise to the skies in the heart of Sao Tome island to find the aged colonial factories and coffee-growing haciendas of Monte Cafe. As you might imagine, even the drive there is one for the travel journals: sweeping vistas of primeval rainforest; endless valleys of misty woods; the occasional rusting hamlet of tin-shack homes.
  • Rolas Island
Languishing in the Atlantic like the teardrop of Sao Tome, just a short boat ride away from the southern tip of the island, the speck on the map that is Rolas Island is famed for its sparkling white-sand beaches and paradisiacal veneer. The sands are invariably totally secluded, cascading down from the jungle-covered coast in a medley of boulder-spotted coves and long stretches of sun-splashed ivory hues.
  • Trindade
Trindade is one of the few possible destinations in Sao Tome that’s not on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. Instead, this small town sits high above the capital, atop the rising ridges of the inland hills. It’s surrounded by the great swathes of coffee plantations and cacao growing fields (the main economic drivers here) that make up the larger Me-Zochi District.
  • Boca de Inferno
The curious geological formations that poke out to meet the swells of the Atlantic on the eastern shore of Sao Tome find their zenith with the strikingly-named Boca de Inferno (that’s Hell’s Mouth in English). Visitors flock to this spot just a short drive south of the capital, to see as the salty whitecaps crash against the shore, and the currents draw water into a subterranean cave, all before they shoot sky high like some marine geyser.
  • Jale Beach
For folk who flock to Sao Tome to see the rare phenomenon of turtles clambering over the beaches and laying their eggs, there’s perhaps no better destination than the arc of golden sand that is Jale Beach. Curving its way around the bends of the southern coast, this bay is known as one of the top places to spot endangered sea turtles during the mating season.
  • Porto Alegre
Porto Alegre is hardly anything like its Brazilian namesake. Instead of one million inhabitants, this one clocks up just over 500 in total. Instead of endless barrios and sprawling modern districts, this town is a ramshackle conglomeration of earthy huts, stilted longhouses and faded fishing canoes.
