The case for a well-developed Aviation Sector in East Africa

An efficient air transport network has an effect on increasing tourism, mining and manufacturing, which in turn has an indirect benefit to the local community in terms of provision of labour, supply of raw materials, etc. It facilitates international trade and makes business travel easier and more efficient.

The impact of an effective regulatory and oversight system, improved airport facilities, air navigation systems and affordable air transport through liberalisation of the industry is vital in enabling sustainable markets for farmers’ and local fishermen’s fresh produce at tourist hotels, camps or for export, hence contributing to poverty reduction.
