Aviation Africa – which opens in Addis Ababa on Wednesday 4th March – will be addressing the impact of Coronavirus on the aviation industry.

 

A keynote address will be given by IATA’s Special Envoy, Raphael Kuuchi.

 

Major airlines are attending, and specialist companies are also visiting the show with systems and solutions that will aid the industry in its plans to protect passengers.

 

Ethiopian Airlines CEO, Tewolde Gabremariam will be taking part in a one-in-one interview on stage where the decision for his carrier to maintain regular links with China will be discussed.

 

Conference Chairman Alan Peaford said. “We know there are a number of companies that are cutting back on travel plans at the moment but we are delighted that so many airlines and aviation companies are aware of the importance of the Aviation Africa event and are determined to take part.

 

“The issues being discussed are important to Africa and by far the majority of our exhibitors, delegates and speakers want our show to go ahead to carry out business – and government advice is such that we can continue as planned, and are looking forward to hosting another successful show.”
