Domestic aviation markets in Southern Africa will recover to 2019 levels by 2023 and international travel by 2024, says the new CEO of the Airline Association of Southern Africa (AASA), Wrenelle Stander.

Stander foresees that recovery of aviation in Africa will take time and will be determined by the political economy, as well as the pace and depth of governments' responses to the Covid-19 crisis. 

"We agree with the assessment by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) that international passenger demand will only return to 2019 levels in 2024. Similarly, Africa's airline market of 115 million passengers is unlikely to recover overnight," she said.
