Driving African Economies through the Power of Aviation was the theme for IATA’s Aviation Day Africa Conference held in May 2016. There are a number of issues affecting aviation in Africa, including safety, security, and infrastructure. This paper seeks to re-examine reasons for the lack of air transport interconnectivity between African States. It also considers what is being done to address these problems with the goal of strengthening efforts for Africa’s economic and developmental progress.
