The roadmap from conventional to modern airports in West Africa

Africa's aviation industry handles nearly 70 million passengers every year and this is estimated to generate 6.9 million jobs and $80bn worth of economic activity over the next 20 years, as aims to become one of the fastest-growing aviation regions, with an average annual expansion of about 5%.

As number of airports in West Africa are undergoing expansion in a bid to cater for rapidly growing passenger and cargo traffic, airports managers and heads of civil aviation authorities are met with the challenging task to deliver expansion projects that will meet international standards and drive revenue aviation and non-aviation activities.

Join us for West Africa Modern Airports Conference, taking place from 20-21 June 2017 in Accra, Ghana, and meet with senior airports and aviation professionals from governments, international airport and civil aviation institutions to address their challenges, share best practices in achieving airport modernisation and boost regional economic growth.
