One Question

Sanjeev Gadhia, chief executive of Astral Aviation, answers:
"WE foresee a greater investment coming from within the continent, especially from the national carriers willing to invest in air cargo (for example, Kenya Airways Cargo recently converted two B737-300s into freighters and Ethiopian Airlines Cargo has a modern freighter fleet comprising B777 freighters).
The Chinese appear bullish with the aviation sector in Africa and are showing a greater appetite for investment compared with the Middle Eastern and European carriers."
