The African Airlines Association (AFRAA) says the date and venue for its 51st Annual General Assembly (AGA) Summit which was scheduled to take place from 24-26 November 2019 in Yaoundé, Cameroon have been changed.
The 51st AGA will take place from 10-12 November 2019 at the InterContinental Mauritius Resort Balaclava Fort at the kind invitation of Air Mauritius.
AFRAA’s Secretary General Mr. Abdérahmane Berthé said: “We are grateful to Air Mauritius and the people of Mauritius for their willingness to host this most important gathering of aviation stakeholders on the continent. This is again a testament to their legendary hospitality and commitment to the development of the African aviation industry.”
He noted that this comes after the country successfully hosted the 8th Aviation Stakeholder’s Convention which brought together more than 300 delegates from Africa and across the globe to stimulate dialogue, build sustainable networks to create a more competitive environment for business and improve the aviation support base on the continent.
Air Mauritius Chief Executive Officer Mr. Somas Appavou said: “It is a pleasure and honour for us to host AFRAA’s 51st Annual General Assembly after the productive 8th Aviation Stakeholder’s Convention held in Mauritius in May. In bringing together principal decision-makers of the aviation industry, AFRAA’s forums have demonstrated that collective thinking can make a significant difference in tackling the challenges of the industry on the continent. We are looking forward to contribute in making AFRAA’s next AGM a success.”
The Annual General Assembly is the premier gathering of African airline CEOs and senior global aviation executives. Annually, the AGA brings together aviation leaders and stakeholders to take stock of aviation milestones and plan the future for the development of African aviation.
