Morocco, Nigeria & South Africa Lead African Aviation Rise - Forbes by Rossikk(m): 12:16am On Nov 30, 2023
Africa's Skyward Ascent: The Rise Of Morocco, Nigeria And South Africa

Forbes

Africa's rise in the global aviation scene is spearheaded by Morocco, Nigeria and South Africa. These leaders are driving growth across private, commercial and military aviation, presenting vast opportunities globally. The next frontier? Aircraft manufacturing, spanning private jets to military drones.


Morocco: Gateway To Africa's Aviation Renaissance

From the edge of the Mediterranean, Morocco is forging an aviation path marked by impressive growth. As Airbus released their forecast of a 3.6% annual growth in demand for passenger traffic, the nation's strategic location, coupled with an investment-friendly climate, makes it an attractive proposition for international aviation businesses, including aircraft manufacturing.

For entrepreneurs and businesses, Morocco offers an open sky policy that encourages foreign investment and partnerships, paving the way for robust growth in its aviation sector.


Nigeria: Spearheading West Africa's Commercial Aviation Boom

In West Africa, Nigeria's aviation industry is taking flight. With an increasing middle-class population and a robust economy, the country's demand for air travel is surging. According to the International Air Transport Association: "Air transport market in Nigeria is forecast under the 'current trends' scenario to grow by 174% in the next 20 years. This would result in an additional 9.4 billion passenger journeys by 2037. If met, this increased demand would support approximately US $4.7 billion of GDP and almost 555,700 jobs."

The surge in air travel demand opens doors for commercial airliner production. Businesses can exploit opportunities from infrastructure to airline services and aircraft manufacturing. Nigeria stands out as a promising hub for global entrepreneurs.


South Africa: A Pioneer In Africa's Private And Military Aviation

South Africa is not only leading the private aviation sector but also shaping the continent's military aviation landscape. The South African Air Force (SAAF), equipped with advanced military aircraft, serves as a testament to the country's military aviation prowess. This experience and infrastructure provide an excellent foundation for the manufacturing of military aircraft and drones.

In private aviation, South Africa continues to be the most mature market on the continent, with over 120 private- and state-owned companies.


The Road Ahead: Africa's Soaring Potential

Africa's aviation industry is set for an upward trajectory, with Morocco, Nigeria and South Africa leading the way. The continent's growth in the sector reflects the combination of expanding economies, urbanization and a burgeoning middle class with increased spending power.

For entrepreneurs and businessmen, these developments represent a unique opportunity to tap into a rapidly growing market, ripe with potential. By investing in aviation-related ventures, including aircraft manufacturing, they can help shape the future of Africa's aviation landscape while benefiting from its growth.

This is a urgent and vital information.there is a celestial at DAKWA,Abuja. The people around knows it as yahoo church. During my findings, I discovered the prophet in this church is Fetish, he owns a shrine inside the church, he brings in young girls every night for sexual intercourse indirectly using them for Ritual. They keep armunitions inside the church compound and also bisect and sell human body.C.C.C world wide should act fast before it's too late.

I am surprised Ethiopian Air is not listed here. They are one of the best in the world and should be the lead airline in Africa at the moment.

Morocco is also riding with Air Maroc.

It’s unfortunate that SAA and Kenyan Airways are dwindling despite all the efforts made to improve them. I flew Kenyan air last week and Delm, worse international flight for me. Air peace at the moment beats Kenya air, well air peace is international so that’s not a worthy comparison.

To improve aviation in Africa,

1. All visas within must be removed. The west have Schengen and unity visas, we are the only continent that requires visas to travel within.
2. We must lax air tariffs amongst ourselves. I went to Uganda this weekend and flying Qatar was a bit more expensive than flying Kenyan. Qatar will first take me out of the continent, then take me to Uganda. Does not make sense. Intra Africa flights should be at least 50% cheaper than continental flights
3. We need to promote our natural resources. Africa is blessed, It was my first time in Uganda and men, I visited Jinja, 4 hours from Kampala where I went to the source of the Nile. I went to Kalangala island, 3 hours by boat from entembee by boat. See virgin white beach sands. Why do we need to go to Europe/ America for vacation?

Jinja is just like our Badagry, people go there for conferences and retreats. We need to improve this across Africa.

I guess you read out of context. The article is talking about growth in the aviation sector mostly about three major countries that are performing well in this regards and not about airlines. Did you see them mentioning airlines that you are bringing Ethiopian air

Nigeria has a huge middle class and always will and its easy to see why. Poor economic conditions don't affect producers much because they simply pass on the cost to consumers.

If you're producing something people need, there'll always be high demand and when this is coupled with a huge consumer population, you get the idea.

You need to see the way air maroc is spreading now. They've really expanded their airport too, tapping from the opportunity in the aviation industry. You'd think you're in Europe. Who com do us like this in this country? Guess what? Nigerians are their major passengers now, to major destinations globally

How safe is it? Holiday in UAE before the ban and Qatar were top notches. I once forgot phone in Dubai taxi. Driver delivered it at four points Sheraton hotel and waiter gave him 10 Dirham for the effort. Disneyland and seven Emirates stadiums with youths football competitions are memories to remember.

I really miss DXB. I always loved to watch football at night on their pitch. It's never a dull moment, being in DXB. Our leaders aren't trying. Nigeria is a composition of many disagreeing nations. No sense of belonging and oneness of spirit. Everyone just gets to power and steal. No plans to truly develop Nigeria. They're rotating leadership amongst themselves while the future of Nigeria are japaing, due to the hardship unleashed on them

Everyone will go their separate ways someday.

Even if we don't go separate ways. It can be divided into regions. Northwest, Northeast, Northcentral, Southeast, Southsouth, Southwest and FCT Abuja. Each region draw a new constitution that is suitable for them in terms of economic and religions.

Dubai metro rail is another memorable experience, except no photo shot allowed inside. I remember how a Ghanaian friend corrected me while on escalator to avoid staying on line of people in a hurry.
