REGISTRATION FOR AFRAA’S 46TH ANNUAL GENERAL ASSEMBLY GATHERS PACE
(Posted 18th September 2014)
The who is who in African aviation is expected to assemble in Algiers between 09th and 11th of November, when the organization is holding its 46th Annual General Assembly at the Algiers Hilton Hotel.
Several hundred airline professionals from the level of CEO’s to middle management have started to sign up for the event, and senior officials from IATA and ICAO, from aircraft manufacturers and aviation suppliers will discuss the industry’s state of affairs since the last assembly in Mombasa last November.
AFRAA has in recent years added more members and been active in launching a fuel saving scheme for over a dozen participating airlines which has since its launch three years ago saved over 30 million US Dollar. AFRAA is presently working to accomplish similar savings under a new initiative to pool ground handling to again give carriers signing on to the scheme major cost savings.
African as well as global aviation media too are expected to be in Algiers together with eTN’s Africa Correspondent who will cover the proceedings for the global industry leader in e-communications to the travel, tourism, hospitality and aviation industry.
Host airline Air Algerie’s President and Director General Mr. Mohamed Salah Boultif, together with the AFRAA Secretary General Dr. Elijah Chingosho have already sent out invitations and assured participants of problem free Visa processing via Algeria’s diplomatic missions. Alternatively will immigration in Algiers provide for Visa on arrival for participants from countries where no Embassy or Consulate is in place as long as prior notice is given via the AFRAA Secretariat in Nairobi.
