Feb 27, 2019: To review their mutual objectives and action plan for the year, the African Airlines Association (AFRAA) and International Air Transport Association (IATA) leadership teams have met at the AFRAA headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, recently.

AFRAA and IATA have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that enhances the collaboration of the two associations on several industry focus areas with the objective of delivering quality service to their mutual members and African industry as a whole. The main areas of collaboration include safety, advocacy, smart regulation, industry costs, environment, and implementation of the Single African Air Transport Market (SAATM), infrastructural development and capacity building.

In June last year, the MoU was signed by Alexandre de Juniac, IATA's director general and CEO and AFRAA's secretary general, Abderahmane Berth, on the sidelines of the 74th IATA annual general meeting held at Sydney.

Meanwhile, the 51st AFRAA annual general assembly (AGA) will be held at Yaounde, Cameroon from November 24 - 26, 2019 and will be hosted by Camair-Co, under the presidency of CEO Ernest Dikoum.
