The African Airlines Association and Airports Council International Africa signed an MOU to materialize their cooperation for the continent’s air transport growth.
Under the framework of the MoU, AFRAA and ACI Africa will mutually support the development of the air transport industry in Africa through collaborative actions to address safe, secure, seamless, environmentally-friendly, and affordable air travel, among others. The MoU was signed by Abdérahmane Berthé, AFRAA’s Secretary-General, and Ali Tounsi, ACI Africa’s Secretary-General.
ACI Africa’s Secretary-General, Ali Tounsi noted: “The development of a safe, secure, and financially viable and sustainable air transport industry in Africa cannot be undertaken without strong and enhanced collaboration between airports and airlines. The MoU signed between ACI Africa and AFRAA was long overdue. I am delighted that the collaboration between our two organizations is being brought to an altogether new level, paving the way for a constructive stakeholder engagement based on mutual trust and respect. This MoU will indeed facilitate the concrete and tangible delivery of services by both our organizations and the implementation of joint actions to advance the air transport industry on the continent.”
