Johannesburg – Members of the Airlines Association of Southern Africa (AASA) voted to extend the terms of the current Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson for the next 12 months.
FlySafair CEO, Elmar Conradie, will continue to serve as AASA’s Chairperson, while Air Botswana CEO, Agnes Khunwana will remain as AASA’s Deputy Chairperson.
Both were unanimously re-appointed during AASA’s 51st Annual General Assembly, which was held online today. They have been serving in those positions since March 2021.
Elmar and Agnes are both highly-respected industry executives committed to the long-term sustainability of the region’s air transport sector. Their appreciation of the commercial and operational realities of the airline industry in the region is invaluable in guiding the ongoing advocacy engagements between AASA and government policy-makers and regulators throughout the Southern Africa Development Community.” Aaron Munetsi, AASA CEO
AASA’s 2021 virtual annual assembly was attended by over 175 delegates representing airlines, airports, air navigation and weather services as well as manufacturers, suppliers and other industry stakeholders.
