Airlines traffic in Africa

leave a comment »

Good Morning friends,

In this nice Friday  I want to invite you to write your opinions and participate with us in this space..

Africa  – In a continent with massive distances between cities, a poor road network and growing demand from business travelers for a new routes, there should be good potential in Africa for legacy airlines and low-cost carriers a like- if greater liberalization of  services can be realized.

It has taken longer for the low cost carrier model to take root in Africa than elsewhere, due to the closed nature of many markets,as well as infraestructure challenges. But a number of agrresive players have now emerged in southern and eastern Africa who are keen to bring affordable fares to African passengers.

International traffic to, from and within Africa carried by African airlines as well as carriers form outside the region should increase considerably in the next years.

Africa airlines may be expected to carry more passengers and goods to and from region and to generate new traffic within Africa as their air services develop.

Nice weekend ,

Mireya
