Aerospace Giant, Boeing, Opens Two New Offices in Africa


To mark a significant milestone as it continues to expand its international presence, the world’s largest aerospace company, Boeing on Tuesday opened two new offices in Johannesburg, South Africa and Nairobi, Kenya.

In its most Current Market Outlook report, the aerospace giant said Africa would be in need of 1,150 new airplanes over the next 20 years. The CMO also predicted that air traffic to and from Africa is expected to grow by about 6.1 percent annually over the next 18 years.

The Johannesburg office will be headed by J. Miguel Santos, managing director for Sub-Saharan Africa, and director for international sales, Africa, for Boeing commercial airplanes.

Boeing’s director of government affairs and market development, Chamsou Andjorin, will be based in the Nairobi office.

In a statement, Santos said “Africa is not new territory for Boeing. Since the introduction of the jet airplane, Boeing aircraft have formed the backbone of the continent’s commercial fleet and Boeing continues to be one of the largest US-based companies doing business on the continent”.

Boeing International was established in 2001 and is responsible for the company's international strategy and corporate operations outside the United States.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
