New Dates for AviaDev Africa

As a result of the international outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have taken the decision to postpone Aviadev Africa until 9-11 June 2021. The wellbeing of our attendees is of great importance and we feel that it is in the best interest of our regional and international participants to reconvene when the situation has improved, and travel restrictions have eased.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the team at Ravinala Airports along with all of our sponsors and partners for their continued support in making this event the most important gathering for route development in Africa.

We look forward to seeing you in June and welcoming you to AviaDev 2021.
