Africa’s aviation sector is growing rapidly, and airports need to prepare for their market situation in five, 10, or even 20 years since it may take that long to actually develop or adapt the master plan to meet the airports changing need and to provide the infrastructure and capacity needed. The 6th Annual Africa Airport Expansion Summit in Addis Ababa gathers the industry in order to explore the market and support the project development. ADB SAFEGATE´s Alexander Herring, chairing the Summit shares his thoughts about the future of African aviation.
IATA projects a 5.1% growth in passenger numbers across the region where nearly 300 million passengers will travel to and from African destinations and as a result, airport development projects today are mushrooming across the continent. ADB SAFEGATE’s Alexander Herring chairs the 6th Annual Africa Airport Expansion Summit in Addis Ababa where the development and expansion plans will be discussed.
