Routes recognises the importance of enhancing intra-Africa air connectivity to stimulate economic development across the region.
The continent is home to over 16% of the global population, yet its share of global passenger traffic is less than 4%. By uniting the region’s leading airlines, airports and tourism bodies, Routes Africa provides an effective platform for key decision makers to update their industry knowledge, discuss potential and existing air services, and network with industry influencers.
