Connected and Safe Skies Africa

Africa has some of the world’s fastest growing economies and the aviation industry expects tourism- and business-related travel to increase to 303 million passengers annually by 2035.

Airlines are under constant pressure to deliver a safe, secure, and smooth flight experience to their passengers; all while ensuring high profitability, low costs, accurate fleet management and exemplary performance.

The Connected and Safe Skies forum creates a conversational space for top level experts to highlight how projected growth trends, upgraded regulatory requirements and safety standards, recent fleet expansions and upgrades, tech implementation strategies, connected aircraft technology solutions and navigational technologies can not only support a particular airline’s business strategy, but also maximise the progress of the entire regional industry towards being global market leaders.

Inmarsat is Exhibit Partner for the event in Nairobi, Kenya. In addition, Gurpreet Sidhu, Inmarsat Aviation Market Development Manager, will be speaking on 28 August at 12:10, explaining how our cockpit and cabin solutions can help airlines in the African continent realise their full potential.

Inmarsat’s participation at the event comes soon after the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) committed to use enhanced ADS-C technology (powered by Inmarsat’s SB-S and Classic Aero services) to achieve reduced distances between aircraft in U.S. oceanic airspace as part of its commitment to implement new international standards by 2022.
