Opening Up Aviation Services in Africa


The World Bank’s Africa Infrastructure Country Diagnostics (AICD) study1 provides analysis of infrastructure gaps, including for aviation, where lack of airline competition and the development of regional airport hubs are noted as important constraints. The Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA), a continent wide programme, builds on this analysis and has identified a number of priority projects (PIDA Priority Action Plan -PAP) which, if implemented would help interconnect, integrate and transform the continent. These include a number of projects that relate to the aviation sector.

 A recent study commissioned by the Infrastructure Consortium for Africa (ICA) Transport Sector Platform highlighted both the potential for private sector participation in Africa, as well as a number of issues that constrain or discourage involvement.

This study aims to build on this foundation work and assist African stakeholders in addressing the next steps in promoting efficient African aviation services. The overall objective is to contribute to addressing the barriers to the expansion of effective aviation services across Africa through analysis and targeted interventions in support of relevant PIDA - PAP projects. Specifically, the study assesses the Yamoussoukro Decision implementation, and West Africa Air Transport and Central Africa Air Transport Hubs.
