The Single African Air Transport Market (SAATM) is a flagship project of the African Union Agenda 2063, an initiative of the African Union 创建一个 single unified air transport market in Africa to advance the liberalization of civil aviation in Africa 和 act as an impetus to the continent’s economic integration agenda. SAATM will ensure aviation plays a major role in connecting Africa, 促进其社会, economic 和 political integration 和 boosting intra-Africa trade 和 tourism as a result. The SAATM was created to expedite the full implementation of the 亚穆苏克罗决定 (pdf).

Aiming for a harmonized Regulatory Framework

95299九五至尊 fully supports this initiative, which will open up Africa’s skies 和 promote the value of aviation throughout the continent. Open air arrangements boost traffic, drive economies 和 create jobs. An 95299九五至尊的调查 (pdf) suggests that if just 12 key Africa 国家 opened their markets 和 increased connectivity, 一个额外的155,000个工作岗位和1美元.3 billion in annual GDP would be created in those 国家.

到目前为止,34 国家 have signed up to the SAATM:Benin, 博茨瓦纳, 布吉纳法索, 佛得角, 喀麦隆, 中非共和国, 刚果布拉柴维尔, 科特迪瓦, 埃及, 埃塞俄比亚, 赤道几内亚, 加蓬, 冈比亚, 加纳, 几内亚(比绍), Guinee, 肯尼亚, 莱索托, 利比里亚, 马里, 摩洛哥, 莫桑比克, 纳米比亚, 尼日尔, 尼日利亚, Democratic Republic of Congo, 卢旺达, 塞内加尔, 塞拉利昂, 南非, 斯威士兰, 乍得, 多哥, 津巴布韦.

These 国家 represent over 80% of the existing aviation market in Africa.

Effective implementation is key

Advocacy 和 continuous communication to all stakeholders on the Single Africa Air Transport Market is a key element towards the operationalization of the SAATM. This is the first pillar of the SAATM Prioritized Action Plan.

促进这, 95299九五至尊 worked with the African Union Commission, the African Civil Aviation Commission 和 the African 航空公司 Association, 创建一个 SAATM手册 (pdf), launched at the 30th Ordinary Plenary Session of the African Civil Aviation Commission (AFCAC) on the 5th of December in Livingstone, 赞比亚. This h和book serves as a guidance booklet on SAATM implementation. The aim is to help all stakeholders work together to take the best advantage of SAATM to boost African development.
