14:00 - 15:30 Parallel 1-A: Opening up the sky over Africa and promoting viable carriers
Objective of Session
With only 3% of world travelers, Africa’s share is still marginal in the area of air transport. The continent suffers from poor service coverage, lack of investment in infrastructure and security levels below world standard. The sector growth is however not weak. It is driven by the low cost regional airlines with a progressive alignment to international safety standards. How to help the sector take off?
