The African Business Aviation Association (AfBAA) has been chosen as the 15th member of the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC). The membership takes immediate effect and AfBAA will participate in the next IBAC council meeting.
As a member of IBAC, AfBAA will join fellow member associations in coordinating a single voice that promotes international standards, policies and best safety practices for the global business aviation sector.
Kurt Edwards, director general of IBAC, commented, “We are very pleased to welcome AfBAA to the IBAC family. We aim to serve the varying needs of international business aviation and can only achieve this with the participation of the official organizations that represent the increasing value of business aviation across all regions of the world.
“We’re seeing growth in the number of African companies that demonstrate their commitment to safety and professionalism by achieving IS-BAH and IS-BAO registration. We look forward to working with AfBAA to further advance safety excellence across Africa.”
AfBAA joins IBAC at a time of significant growth, as it marks its fifth year of supporting the sustainable development of business aviation across Africa.
Rady Fahmy, CEO of AfBAA, commented, “We are delighted to have been confirmed as the latest member of this prestigious organization. It is a major milestone for us and one that we have worked hard to achieve. We look forward to collaborating with our fellow members from around the world to continue to improve standards in Africa and worldwide. It is a very exciting development for us.”
