Development Community (SADC), the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). Santos envisages a situation where, for example, the SADC could create a civil aviation authority which covers all members with uniform legislation made up from experts from various countries.
“Then you would have a single regulatory agency for all the 11 countries of the SADC, that would be a lot more e cient for the civil aviation environment,” Santos expresses
how with Boeing’s new presence in Africa it can help to develop the continent’s aviation industry towards that goal.
“If countries can combine their resources
it will make it cheaper and more e cient
for everybody. That is the end goal, it is a challenge but with our presence now in Africa maybe we can move in that direction.”
