What is African Aviation Week?

Get behind African Aviation Week and our bid to champion aviation success across the continent

GHI’s 5th African Stakeholders’ Conference is proud to be held under the banner of African Aviation Week, which runs from 16-20 September, 2019.

African Aviation Week is an annual campaign to champion best practice, market liberalisation and world-class safety standards among Africa’s aviation community.

The initiative is being promoted by Ground Handling International (GHI), the AviAssist Foundation and the AviaDev Africa forum and we are seeking support from fellow aviation stakeholders.

After its debut in Rwanda last year- African Aviation Week will take place in Kenya in 2019.

Kenya recently became one of just eight in Africa to achieve Category One status for effective implementation of ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices and announced its first direct routes to the US.

These milestones echo African Aviation Week’s principles of championing safety excellence and greater connectivity in Africa.
