CEO Elmar Conradie of FlySafair will remain AASA chairman, while CEO Agnes Khunwana of Air Botswana will serve as deputy chairman.
AASA’s 51st Annual General Assembly, held online today, reappointed both women overwhelmingly. Since March 2021, they’ve held those roles.
“Elmar and Agnes are both well-known business leaders who care deeply about the region’s aviation industry’s long-term viability. With their understanding of the commercial and operational realities of the aviation business in the region, AASA’s engagement with government policymakers and regulators throughout the Southern African Development Community is greatly aided,” stated CEO Aaron Munetsi.
Over 175 delegates from airlines, airports, air navigation and weather services, as well as manufacturers, suppliers and other industry stakeholders, attended the AASA 2021 virtual annual assembly. Arrangements are being prepared for the Airlink-sponsored AASA’s 52nd annual general assembly in 2022 to stage a live in-person event again
