Cooperation between African airlines ‘would be extremely beneficial’: RwandAir CEO

    RwandAir CEO Yvonne Manzi Makolo, speaking to IATA on the sidelines of the IATA AGM and World Air Transport Summit, said (Jun-2018) competition between African airlines “has a detrimental effect on the airlines and it prevents further growth”. She said collaboration between African carriers “would be extremely beneficial for all airlines in the continent”. Ms Makolo stated: “If there’s no collaboration then we leave the space wide open for other international carriers to take up that space so it’s very important, especially for the smaller airlines”.
