Key among the workable solutions by the Association for resilience to the industry is AFRAA’s 9-Pillar recovery plan that outlines a framework of various areas of intervention, measures to be taken as part of urgent, immediate, and consistent actions for the survival and rebound of the industry. Other initiatives that have been launched since the on-set of the pandemic include: AFRAA MRO joint venture, AFRAA connectivity index, AFRAA connectivity portal, AFRAA capacity sharing portal: AFRAA project for reduction of air navigation bills. Mr Berthé invited Ethiopian Airlines to take part as a pilot airline for AFRAA’s new projects.

 

AFRAA and Ethiopian Airlines signed an MoU on training that will facilitate a framework of collaboration between AFRAA and Ethiopian Airlines Aviation Academy to achieve common objectives on training of aviation professionals across the African continent. The collaboration will support the development of sustainable and safe air transport system in Africa and thereby effectively contribute to the continent’s economic development and integration.

Hence, a partnership between AFRAA and airline aviation training centres would be a way forward to overcome the challenges relating to the training of next-generation aviation professionals.”
