Under the MoU, IATA and AFRAA will exchange information, expertise and capabilities and work to enhance safety by assisting airlines to successfully implement IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA), IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) and IATA Ground Handling Manual (IGOM).
They will also promote regional air connectivity by working with governments to support Single African Air Transport Market (SAATM) implementation.
"Africa is full of potential. Unlocking the economic and social benefits of aviation is a critical element of the continent’s development. This MoU will help ensure that global standards and best practices form the backbone of Africa’s aviation growth,” expanded Alexandre de Juniac, director general, IATA.
