South-South Knowledge Exchange : Air Service Development - Report on the Knowledge Exchange Experience (Inglês)

Africa’s natural and socio-cultural resources match the growing demand of the international and intra-regional tourism market. Despite their significant potential, many countries in the region struggle to develop and sustain competitive tourism sectors. African countries are at different levels of development and main constraints to tourism development vary by country, but similar patterns of challenges and opportunities have been identified: poor data and statistics, poor inter and intra-regional access and connectivity (that is, visas, destination infrastructure, and air travel), low capacity in digital marketing and knowledge of digital economy, and ineffective training facilities are just some of the common constraints holding the region back in tourism performance. Air and road connections are the most commonly mentioned constraints to growth for tourism in Sub Saharan Africa (SSA). Africa’s distance from generating markets creates an acute need for higher quality and more competitive air access. While resolving the infrastructure investment needs of SSA countries is key, a well-developed air service development program is critical to ensure competitive cost, frequency, and routing of airlines in SSA. Following the submission of a funding proposal and a competitive selection process, the World Bank’s South-South facility approved funding for a knowledge exchange between members of the nascent Madagascar Air Route Development Committee and Cape Town Air Access. This report describes the activities of the knowledge exchange and its key outcomes.
