AviaDev Contributes R3.3 Million to South Africa’s GDP
An independent analysis by I&M Futureneer Advisors of the economic impact created by AviaDev Africa, indicates that it generated R3.3 million of direct expenditure with R525,000 in tax income to the government.
This figure considers the deals and new routes that Cape Town and South Africa secured and derives the estimated value on the country’s GDP. Further analysis of the figures also suggests that the event helped to sustain 16 full time and part time employment opportunities.
Later this year, AviaDev is holding its 2nd Air Service Development training workshop on 23-24 September in Addis Ababa. This workshop will deliver hands on knowledge and enable participants to effectively market their destination to new airlines and suppliers.
The 2-day course is designed to increase understanding, learn new techniques and ultimately aid the improvement in connectivity to, from and within the African continent. For further information and to register for the 2019 AviaDev, visit www.aviationdevelop.com
