2019 African Airlines Association Annual General Meeting

12 Nov 19

Location: Mauritius
Alton Team: Sascha Feuerherd

Sascha Feuerherd, an Alton Aviation Consultancy Managing Director, will be one of the expert panelists speaking at AFRAA AGA in Mauritius.

This annual African air transport summit and conference gathers top leaders of the air transport industry from across the globe. Holding the AGA in Mauritius will focus the global industry’s attention on the opportunities in trade and tourism in the region and the rapidly growing African economies in general as links are being strengthened within the continent and to new as well as traditional markets. Deliberations over the course of the AGA will focus on the main theme: “Success in an integrated and interconnected Africa”. Industry leaders will discuss growth potential through positive synergies in servicing our increasingly complex and demanding market. We expect the discussions at the AGA to be enriching to both the audiences and to the discussants thereby resulting in new ideas and new directions on how to make the Single Air Transport Market (SAATM) a win-win experience for all. With so many representatives from the Association’s member airlines, industry partners, international and regional associations, leading manufacturers and industry suppliers as well as our media partners, there are tremendous opportunities to network and explore business opportunities or just to make new friends.

In the panel discussion “Embracing disruptive trends – the future is too late”, Sascha will shed light on the performance of African airlines in the global context and will address disruptions to change improve the financial position of member airlines.
