According to Aviation Africa 2015, the event will take place between on 10thand 11th May 2015 in Dubai, UAE.

There are also senior figures from aviation authorities and associations who include Dr. Elijah Chingosho, secretary general, Africa Airlines Association – AFRAA, Hussein Dabbas, VP Africa and Middle East, IATA and Dr Hamdi Chaouk, Director General, Civil Aviation Lebanon.

Aviation Africa 2015 has been launched to change the perception of African aviation. The panel sessions will deal with the opportunities and issues challenging the growth of the African aviation market, tackling Open Skies, Training, Human Factors, Finance and Business Aviation.

Alan Peaford, the Summit Chairman and show organizer said: “We are delighted that our panel sessions at the summit will include these high level speakers as their participation ensures the debates will benefit from their leadership experience and help to encourage not just discussion but decisions and real progress”.

”Reason for occasion taking place in Dubai, is because  that city is world’s global hub .Also because  currently it is the best-placed city to host this event.  The home of “open skies”, with more international routes to Africa than Africa carriers themselves plus visa regulations that make it easier for Pan-African nationals to meet in one place.” Aviation Africa said.

The two-day summit will also feature an associated exhibition with up to 40 companies who currently include UAS International Trip Support as Gold Sponsor, African Open Sky and Atlantic FuelEx as Silver sponsors, NEXUS and Wyvern Consulting as Gala Reception sponsors, Hadid Flight Services as Bag sponsor and exhibiting companies such as Ethiopian Airlines, the Official Carrier, Safat Aviation Group, Boeing and Jeppesen.
