Summit introduction: Civil Aviation

Under the theme ‘Flying forward together – developing partnerships for Africa’s future skies’ the two-day civil aviation African summit brings together leaders across the civil aviation industry to discuss and debate the key issues that are driving change across the African Continent.

Meet airline CEOs and key industry and government players who will debate the key topics. The theme, an embodiment of the 'Spirit of Rwanda' focuses on how cooperation and collaboration will develop safe and efficient African aviation whether that be through inter-government relations, airline partnerships or consolidations, civil aviation authority initiatives or industry joint ventures.

  • Why Public-private partnerships can drive Africa’s aerospace infrastructure and modernisation faster and further.
  • How Francophone African airlines are working together to share common skies as well as a common language.

  • Understanding why Africa’s growing business aviation community is supporting the expansion of national economies and creating opportunities.
  • How nations can share resource and capability to develop opportunities in training, education and technology development to meet the industry’s future needs.
