    Aviation Festival Africa

    It is estimated that 20% of the world’s population will be living in Africa within the next 20 years. The Africa story has meant that consumer demands, expectations, lifestyles and business needs are changing drastically. Africa therefore presents massive potential in terms of economic development, growth opportunities and air travel.

    Aviation is and will continue to be the best and most efficient way to connect Africa’s countries – and indeed to the rest of the world. Airlines and airports can profit from the changes, but they need to invest, build & innovate.

    The Aviation Festival is here to show the industry how to pioneer in this dynamic market. By bringing global experts and world leading case studies to Africa – airlines, airports and their partners learn how to win new business through the convergence of technology, customer experience and new revenue streams. And now there are more events under the aviation festival banner that will cater to full-service airlines and to airports.
