Fly Africa: Unlocking the Potential of Africa’s Aviation Industry
FLY AFRICA, a book authored by Hassan El-Houry, a pioneer in the African aviation industry and Eric Kacou, an African strategist and investor, was launched Monday on Amazon. The book highlights how aviation could become one of Africa’s greatest strengths, underpinning its economic growth and connecting it with the rest of the world. Yet today, Africa’s aviation industry lags behind much of the world. This disparity is most evident in the fact that Africans make up 12% of the world’s population but less than 2% of its travelers. This discrepancy is not inevitable. Aviation can provide a lifeline to revitalize national economies throughout Africa and contribute to development. The authors have also mapped a route to transforming the continent’s aviation industry, highlighting its existing champions and illustrating the effects aviation can have on other sectors. The content of FLY AFRICA is based on solid research and combined with personal knowledge and experience, gathered from El-Houry’s role as Group CEO of National Aviation Services (NAS), the fastest growing aviation services provider in emerging markets. This makes FLY AFRICA an honest picture of the aviation industry in Africa and its great potential. All in all, FLY AFRICA is a must-read for anyone who believes in aviation in Africa.
