The Agency for Aerial Navigation Safety in Africa and Madagascar (L'Agence pour la Sécurité de la Navigation aérienne en Afrique et à Madagascar, ASECNA) is an air traffic control agency based in Dakar, Senegal. It manages 16.1 million square kilometres of airspace (1.5 times the size of Europe) covering six Flight Information Regions (FIRs) – Antananarivo, Brazzaville, Dakar Oceanic and Terrestrial, Niamey[1] and N’Djamena. ASECNA Air Traffic Control centres are based at international airports in each of these cities.

In July 2008, a strike by ASECNA staff in Gabon disrupted air traffic in Cameroon and elsewhere.[2]
