African Aviation: Building Fleets and Improving Safety

African aviation is expected to be one of the fastest growing sectors in terms of air traffic in the world, second only to China. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) says international passenger growth of 7.7 percent is expected over the next few years. The founder of the African Business Travel Association (ABTA), Monique Swart, says she’s seen first-hand the rapid rise in business travel across the continent, as companies expand their African aviation networks: “Many global corporations who first opened their doors in South Africa in the early to mid-90s are now starting to branch out into other fast-developing countries including Nigeria, Ghana, Angola, and Kenya.”
