Welcome message from AFRAA Secretary General
The African Airlines Association (AFRAA) welcomes all its airline members, partners and industry stakeholders to the 51st Annual General Assembly (AGA) of the Association. The Assembly is being convened at the kind invitation of Air Mauritius on the beautiful island of Mauritius, a sparkling crystal in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, the island of paradise.
This annual African air transport summit and conference gathers top leaders of the air transport industry from across the globe. Holding the AGA in Mauritius will focus the global industry’s attention on the opportunities in trade and tourism in the region and the rapidly growing African economies in general as links are being strengthened within the continent and to new as well as traditional markets.
Deliberations over the course of the AGA will focus on the main theme: “Success in an integrated and interconnected Africa”. Industry leaders will discuss growth potential through positive synergies in servicing our increasingly complex and demanding market. We expect the discussions at the AGA to be enriching to both the audiences and to the discussants thereby resulting in new ideas and new directions on how to make the Single Air Transport Market (SAATM) a win-win experience for all.
With so many representatives from the Association’s member airlines, industry partners, international and regional associations, leading manufacturers and industry suppliers as well as our media partners, there are tremendous opportunities to network and explore business opportunities or just to make new friends.
Together with our host, Air Mauritius, we have made adequate arrangements to ensure that your stay in Mauritius is enjoyable and most rewarding.
I look forward to welcoming you to Mauritius for a memorable AGA.
Mr. Abdérahmane Berthé
AFRAA Secretary General
