African Airlines Association Partners With KAA To Implement A Sustainable Airline Industry

The African Airlines Association has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Kenya Association of Air Operators to provide mutual support to the sustainable development of the airline industry in Kenya.

Under the framework of the collaboration, AFRAA and KAAO will work closely on engagement of local authorities and stakeholders on air transport matters. The two operators will have a joint advocacy on issues such as taxes, charges, aviation policy, market restrictions, infrastructure and capacity building.

Implementing of the roadmap of the African Air Transport Sustainability Steering Committee, Data Intelligence, Training, Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives and events are also some of the factors partnered on.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, AFRAA Secretary General, Mr. Abdérahmane Berthé stated: “There are some country-specific opportunities and challenges of the airline industry in Africa that vary from country to country. AFRAA is excited to forge a close working relationship with KAAO as this will enhance the level of support by AFRAA to the airline industry in Kenya. This approach is a building block to AFRAA’s mission for a sustainable, interconnected and affordable air transport industry in Africa where African airlines become key players and drivers to African economic development.”

 “As part of KAAOs strategy, we are aiming at developing strong partnerships for advocacy and mutual benefit and this is the first step. We are keen to leverage learnings from AFRAA as they have a pan-African view of the opportunities and challenges faced by the air transport industry in Africa of which Kenya’s robust and dynamic aviation sector forms a significant part of this eco-system” KAAO Chairman Mbuvi Ngunze added.

The MoU will synergize the efforts by both Associations. AFRAA and KAAO will align periodically to review the implementation of the annual Action Plan and explore areas for further collaboration.
