AFRICA IN FOCUS >> Coming up on 28 October, 2014: State of Aviation Sector in Africa (2)

State of the Aviation Sector(2)

In this edition of AIF, we will be discussing the aviation sector in Africa, with a special focus on two updates.

The first is AFRAA's meeting with the AU Commission that plan to convene a meeting on the Yamassoukro Decision October ending, and the second is the 23rd Airports Council Intl Africa Regional Assembly, held in SA.

We want to find out the state of Africa's aviation sector and explore way forward, especially now Ebola is being contained.

Guiding Questions to be answered:
·        What concrete measures are airlines taking to help bring down tickets?
·        How satisfied are the airlines operating here that the Yamassoukro Declaration is being implemented?
·        Taxes, Charges and Fees are the highest in West Africa. Is it a case of West African governments being insensitive to the necessity of airlines in contributing to Africa’s development?
·        What can our governments do better to help the aviation sector, beyond implementing the YD?
·        How can tourism help synergise with the aviation industry?

Guests in the studio:
Ø  William Afadzinu, Marketing Manager, ASKY Airlines
Ø  Anthony Sarfo, Marketing Manager--West & North Africa, Kenya Airways
Ø  Representative, Arik Air
Ø  Ignatius Ahimbisibwe, RwandAir
