Aviation Festival Africa - Update

Dear Colleague,
One of our favorites aviation quotes goes something like this: Build 4 kilometers of road, and you can travel 4 kilometers. Build 4 kilometers of runway, and you can travel the world!.
The world has long since noticed the massive opportunity that lies in Africa, and the developments in aviation are seen as one of the highest priorities. A study by IATA forecasts that the top ten fastest - growing aviation markets will all be in Africa.
