Posted 2 September 2019 · Add Comment

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has announced that the 2019 IATA Regional Aviation Forum, Kenya hosted by Kenya Airways will focus on the theme of ‘Aviation Connecting and Enriching Africa’.

 

“Africa is set to become one of the fastest growing aviation regions over the next 20 years, with the industry set to expand by nearly 5% annually. This creates significant opportunities for aviation to fuel sustainable economic growth, and social development.  However, the continent’s economy cannot take off while its runway is obstructed. The forum provides a platform to discuss the main challenges, which the industry, together with its government partners, must address to unleash Africa’s full potential,” said Muhammad Ali Albakri, IATA’s Regional Vice President for Africa and the Middle East.

The IATA Regional Aviation Forum will be held in Nairobi on the 17 September 2019.  In addition to Albakri, who will deliver keynote remarks, the opening plenary will feature an address by Kenya Airways’ chairman, Michael Joseph, and chief executive officer, Sebastian Mikosz.
