AASA calls for governments to prioritise support for aviation and tourism in southern Africa

Airlines Association of Southern Africa (AASA) stated (08-Oct-2020) economic recovery in southern Africa will be delayed by "unnecessary" restrictions and lack of support for the air transport industry. AASA stated the "continued imposition of inconsistent and arbitrary restrictions on air travel" jeopardises economic recovery, future growth and nearly five million jobs in the region. The association called for regional governments to prioritise support for the air transport and tourism industries. AASA CEO Chris Zweigenthal said: "Governments can and must provide support to the entire industry as the recovery of their economies is heavily dependent upon it". [more - original PR]
