The Second ICAO Meeting on the Sustainable Development of Air Transport in Africa builds upon the Declaration on the Sustainable Development of Air Transport in Africa,
adopted in Antananarivo, Madagascar, on 27 March 2015 (the “Antananarivo Declaration ”). Through this strategic document, participants from 34 States, international organizations and aviation stakeholders, decided to take action for the sustainable development of air transport in Africa in several key areas including: liberalization of market access and air carrier ownership and control; cooperation throughout the air transport value chain; consumer protection; fair competition; security & facilitation; funding for infrastructure and intermodal integration; support to remote or peripheral destinations; taxes and user charges; capacity-building for qualified personnel; support to the Single African Air Transport Market (SAATM); fleet modernization; and adherence to international instruments.
This Meeting will allow policy-makers, air transport regulators, representatives from the aviation industry and other stakeholders, to review progress towards implementation of the Antananarivo Declaration, identify challenges and opportunities, and agree on a Roadmap for priority actions, building on the decisions of the 39th ICAO Assembly.
