Regional Market Southern Africa & Indian Ocean
Southern Africa and Indian Ocean is an exciting and dynamic area, which is currently experiencing strong economic growth and increased tourism. This leads to a demand for intermodal transport infrastructure solutions to serve the markets and satisfy international investor requirements. Passengers and goods need safe and reliable transport. Establishing a comprehensive civil aviation administration framework is crucial to ensure safe and secure operations and open sky policies. We are experienced in the intricacies of the strategic development and capacity building of airports and airlines in expanding markets.
Iraq and Jordan also lie within my area of responsibility. Both countries require a competitive aviation infrastructure and need to enhance their CAA framework. Modern and reliable airlines are key to keeping pace with the challenging Middle East and European carriers. A strong aviation industry will be able to support the local economy in the future for the benefit of the communities and their people.
