Additionally, major stakeholders in air navigation service providers, accident investigation bureaus, business and charter operators, cargo airlines, ground handling companies, flight training organizations, and allied aviation service providers are expected to participate in the event.

The summit will focus on discussions about the sustainability of the aviation industry on the continent. Topics will also include Africa’s role in the production of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), aviation finance, business aviation, Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facilities, and crucial issues such as future workforce and safety.

Capt. Musa Nuhu, the Director-General Civil Aviation (DCAA), extended a warm invitation on behalf of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, expressing eagerness to welcome attendees to the event in Abuja. This marks Nigeria’s debut as a host of the Aviation Africa Summit & Exhibition, a prominent gathering that facilitates networking, knowledge exchange, and business development within the African aviation community.
