    Infrastructure Companies in Operation in Djibouti

    Recommended Posts

    Dear Gentlemen,


    - 1968 creation of the Regional Infrastructure Companies (Compagnies Régionales d’Infrastructure / CRI)

    - 2005, the CRIs of Metz and Bordeaux became respectively the Infrastructure Companies in Operation (Compagnies d’Infrastructure en Opération / CIO) 11.513 and 13.513 

    - 2011, the two CIOs merged to create the Air Operations Support Group (Groupement Aérien d'Appui aux Opérations / GAAO) 10.513

    - 2021, the GAAO was renamed Operations Support Air Wing (Escadre Aérienne d'Appui aux Opérations / EAAO) 00.513


    The mission is to support the deployment of air forces by setting up, at all times, in all places and in all forms of threat, the facilities that make up a planned air base.

    These facilities can be aircraft parking and maintenance structures, defence protection elements (combat posts, watchtowers, fences, barbed wire, etc.), units for the production and distribution of electrical energy and drinking water (with drilling capacity), wastewater treatment units, modular structures for offices, housing, etc.
