Africa And Arab Airlines In Pact
The African Airline Association will work together with the Arab Air Carriers
Organization to promote the welfare of their members. Mr Teffaha Abdul Wahab, the Secretary-General of Aaco, whose headquarters are in Beirut, Lebanon, was in Nairobi to seal the deal.
His host, Mr Christian Folly-Kossi, the Secretary-General of the Nairobi-based Afraa said the cooperation would benefit member airlines. "Our top priority is for our member airlines to work together closely in the areas of environmental development, computer reservation system, slot allocation, international representation, joint projects and
cross-organization co-ordination," said Mr Wahab.
Afraa was established in 1968 in Accra, Ghana and plays a unifying role for member airlines by promoting cooperation, offering consultancy services such as training, and defending their interests.
Aaco was established in 1965 by a decision of the Arab League of Nations. Under the joint projects, member airlines have joint computer systems, joint fuel purchasing as well as joint ground handling systems. The associations are now embarking on e-commerce and marketing for their members
