Sustainable development of air transport in Africa

A meeting on the sustainable development of air transport in Africa is taking place from March 25 to 27, 2015 in Antananarivo, Madagascar.

Tourism development of the Vanilla Islands is closely linked to air transportation. To take advantage of world tourism growth, air connectivity must be on the priorities list of the islands’ authorities.

The Vanilla Islands is echoing the word of the Indian Ocean islands, especially on searching how to maximize the possible synergies between the airlines. The Vanilla Islands and Air Austral is leading the way in this regard, and they have already launched a pass to facilitate an inter-islands combination.

In the footpath of the Indian Ocean commission, Pascal Viroleau, the CEO of Vanilla Islands Organization, said: “It is now the time to extend this idea to the other Indian Ocean airlines and make the cooperation a winning strategy.

“I fully support the process of an Indian Ocean federation of airlines for the benefit of the population and for the tourists.”
