Air Mauritius To Hold 51st AFRAA AGA – By Ewos IRORO & Tanor ONOWOREMU


The African Airlines Association (AFRAA) recently announced that the date and venue for the 51st AFRAA Annual General Assembly (AGA) & summit which was scheduled to take place from 24-26 November 2019 in Yaounde, Cameroon have been changed.
The 51st AGA will now hold on November 10-12, 2019 at the Intercontinental Mauritius Resort Balaclava Fort at the kind invitation of Air Mauritius.
AFRAA’s Secretary General, Mr. Abderahmane Berthe 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.”
It is worthy of note that Mauritius successfully hosted the 8th Aviation Stakeholder’s Convention in May 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.
Chief Executive Officer of Air Mauritius, 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. We are thankful for the role that Air Mauritius has been called upon to play within AFRAA. Being part of Africa, we face the challenges and share the opportunities of the continent’s aviation industry. Moreover, as a small Island Developing State, being part of a broader partnership such as AFRAA is key for us to overcome the hurdles stemming from our insularity. We are looking forward to contribute in making AFRAA’s next AGM a success.”
AFRAA and Air Mauritius look forward to hosting delegates in Mauritius for a tremendous Assembly in November. Efforts have been made to curtail the inconvenience caused by the change in date and venue.
The Annual General Assembly (AGA) is the premier meeting of the African Airline CEOs and senior global aviation executives. Yearly, the AGA brings together aviation leaders and stakeholders to take stock of aviation milestones and plan the future for the development of African Aviation.
