Aviation Africa summit and exhibition 2020 to be hosted in Addis Ababa

Aviation Africa is a major trade event for the aerospace and defense industries.

Aviation Africa 2019 is looking forward to welcoming visitors to the conference in Addis Ababa from March 4-5.

The event is a 2-day summit and exhibition. Speakers within our open-air ‘silent’ conference hall will include Air Chiefs, leaders from African airlines, civil aviation authorities, business aviation & support industries.

The co-located exhibition will feature over 100 global aviation companies.

Addis has already overtaken Dubai as the leading gateway to Sub-Saharan Africa from the rest of the world, according to the travel intelligence agency ForwardKeys and Ethiopia is now investing $5billion in a new airport to cope with a growth in passenger numbers that could tip 40%.

The current Bole Airport is within three years of reaching its capacity and as the country’s flag carrier – and Africa’s most profitable airline, Ethiopian Airlines – continues its reach across the continent and beyond, the rush is on to finance, build and equip the new super hub.

Rwanda – now with investment from Qatar Airways – is also pushing ahead with a new airport outside of the capital Kigali to support the outstanding growth of its national carrier RwandAir.

Aviation Africa 2020 Summit, held at the Skylight Hotel close to Bole International Airport, will be looking at the challenges and opportunities being embraced by African airport companies.

“You only have to look at cities around the world with hub airports and their economic success to understand that the two go hand-in-hand,” said Chloe Greenbank, editor of Regional Gateway magazine and the moderator of the airport segment of the Summit.

“Take London, New York, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Dubai or Doha, they are all flourishing cities with strong economies and major air transport hubs. And now you can add the likes of Addis Ababa and Casablanca to that list.”
