The Airlines Association of Southern Africa (ASA) will hold its 47th Annual General Assembly from 12-15 October 2017 at the Wild Coast Sun on South Africa's eastern seaboard. The conference host is Cemair.

The event is a gathering of around 300 delegates comprising leading executives and policy makers from Southern African airlines, airports, air navigation services, aircraft and engine manufacturers, ground handling companies, governments, regulatory bodies and associated business sectors.

“Challenges such as skills development, transformation, the economy, environmental impact and other topical issues affecting airlines and air travel in the region will dominate the debates and panel discussions,” said AASA’s CEO, Chris Zweigenthal. “Speakers include regional and international experts and we expect the Assembly to generate follow-up initiatives and actions to address the challenges."
