In a statement AFRAA said: “The African Airlines Association identifies with and joins the rest of the world, and specifically the global aviation industry, in collaborative efforts to collectively deal with and attempt to contain the universal pandemic of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) which continues to spread across the globe. It is indeed AFRAA’s responsibility to safeguard the health and well-being of our members, partners and stakeholders attending our events and limit the spread of the virus where possible.

 

“We thank you for your support and understanding, as we continue to empathize and unite with the rest of the world in dealing with this inconvenience caused by the prevailing circumstances, which continues to adversely affect the global aviation industry.”
