The five-year-old African Business Aviation Association (AfBAA), which was founded in May 2012 and currently has 121 members, has become the fifteenth member of the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC), which is the global industry association for the business or executive aviation sector. IBAC, set up in 1981, holds permanent observer status at the International Civil Aviation Organisation, which is a specialised agency of the United Nations. “We are delighted to have been confirmed as the latest member of this prestigious organisation, it is a major milestone for us and one that we have worked hard to achieve,” affirmed AfBAA CEO Rady Fahmy. “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.”
