Air Algerie to host AFRAA summit

Air Algerie will host the 46th Annual General Assembly (AGA) and summit of the African Airlines Association (AFRAA). This annual event, which was last held in Mombasa, Kenya, in November 2013, is expected to attract over 400 high profile delegates from the aviation industry in Africa, Europe, Middle East, Asia and North America.

As a major gathering of senior global aviation executives in Africa, the AFRAA AGA annually brings together global aviation leaders and stakeholders to take stock of aviation development in Africa and to plan the future. This year’s event will be held under the theme: “Winning Together through Innovation and Collaboration” and will discuss issues of collaboration, liberalization, innovation, development of intra-African air transport among others.

2014 will see Air Algerie play host to the AFRAA AGA for the third time in history, the first time in 1984 and the second time in 1990. Dr. Elijah Chingosho, AFRAA Secretary General said: “The AGA will evaluate the growing air transport opportunities in Africa and how operators can provide safe, reliable, efficient and profitable air services to support the continent’s development. By taking stock of the market realities, African airlines will be able to mobilize the necessary resources and forge partnerships to grow their market share.”

The President of AFRAA, CEO of Air Algerie, Mr. Mohamed Salah Boultif, said: “The AGA will discuss issues on the development of air transport in Africa in general and development opportunities for African airlines in particular.
