Let us not shy away from the high standards set out because it is in high compliance that the African airlines will thrive to greater heights,” said Mikoz. AFRAA Secretary General Abdérahmane Berthé observed that aviation was a critical economic driver and urged stakeholders to ensure the sector realizes its full potential. “Key to this is unlocking the immense potential of our able and youthful workforce and that is why the assembly is calling upon the global aviation sector in Africa to discuss existing barriers for gender equality in aviation and to share best practices,” he said. Berthé urged African Governments to facilitate youth development in aviation through affordable training and education for a safe and secure aviation in Africa. “The Airlines should prioritize youth development through their actions and put in place necessary programmes to bring this about,” the AFRAA Secretary General maintained.
