Posted 9 June 2020 · Add Comment

The African Airlines Association (AFRAA) and the leading aviation service provider, ACC Aviation Group, have announced a strategic partnership for the provision of market-leading services that will support the development of Africa’s aviation industry.

 

The strategic partnership forms the basis for AFRAA’s membership services initiative, “AFRAA Consulting – Powered by ACC”, with the global aviation company lending their expertise across a range of aviation services, including strategic consultancy and asset management, aircraft charter and (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance, Insurance) ACMI leasing.

 

AFRAA secretary general, Abdérahmane Berthé, said: “We are excited to partner with ACC Aviation Group. The air transport industry is a key component of Africa’s economic development and this joint initiative is an important step in promoting African airlines on the global stage.

 

“AFRAA Consulting – Powered by ACC will provide our members with access to market-leading strategic services and training, giving them the means to improve organisational resilience and respond even more effectively to global market opportunities”.

“Working together with ACC, AFRAA seeks to maximise our efforts to realise a sustainable, interconnected and affordable Air Transport industry in Africa and unlock the potential of Africa’s aviation industry.” Mr. Berthe added.

 

ACC’s regional VP - Africa, Daniel Huggins, commented: “We are extremely proud to be entering into this partnership with AFRAA, which represents a fantastic milestone for ACC, both on an organisational level and in terms of the work we have been doing within the African region. This joint initiative provides a platform to help raise the profile of African airlines globally and effectively maximise their fleet utilisation, something that ACC has already seen great successes from, through our relationships with a number of key African carriers.

 

He added: “The other side of the equation is that, under the initiative, participating AFRAA members can take advantage of a range of consultancy services aimed at helping them respond to changes in the market – increasingly important as businesses begin looking past this current period of volatility and planning for the future.”
