RwandAir to Host 6th Safety in African Aviation Conference
The AviAssist Foundation has announced that the 6th Safety in African Aviation (SiAA) conference will be held in Kigali, Rwanda on 19 and 20 March 2018 and will be hosted by RwandAir.
The announcement was made on the final day of the 2016 Safety in African Aviation conference held in Livingstone, Zambia.
“We are looking forward to bringing SiAA back to Rwanda,” said Tom Kok, the foundation director . “Kigali is a remarkable city in an equally remarkable country and it is fitting that Africa’s premier safety event will be hosted by RwandAir, one of Africa’s fastest growing airlines,” he said.
“I am delighted and honored that the AviAssist Foundation has chosen Kigali as the venue and RwandAir as the host airline for the 2018 Safety in African Aviation conference,” RwandAir deputy chief executive officer Jean Paul Nyirubutama said. “RwandAir is going through major growth and wants to ensure it stays a safety leader in our industry. Partnering on this event gives us the opportunity not just to continuously invest in our own safety performance but support the region in doing the same. My RwandAir colleagues and I look forward to welcoming the delegates to our home base of Kigali, gateway to Africa.”
