The African Business Aviation Association (AfBAA) hosted the first African Business Aviation Conference (AfBAC) in Johannesburg from 29 November to 1 December. In conjunction with the event, Global Jet Capital (GJC) produced detailed analysis and forecasts for the African business aviation sector. GJC estimates that the continent’s fleet will grow from 408 aircraft today to 520 by 2025. Driving this growth will be delivery of some 160 new build aircraft valued at just under $4 billion. AfBAC, which opened under the theme ‘Supporting Business Aviation Evolution in Africa’, attracted over 50 exhibitors and featured some 30 conference speakers.
