This episode was recorded on location in Magical Kenya, where AviaDev attended the AFRAA aviation stakeholders convention. 

Kuljit Ghata-Aura is President, Boeing Middle East, Turkey, and Africa. Kuljit is a relatively new name and face in the African aviation industry, but his experience and African roots are deep as we discover on the podcast.

Together, we discuss:

🛫 Boeing's huge African footprint and the long-term outlook for the continent. 

✈️ The aircraft types that will be needed for growth in Africa and whether that will be the single-aisle 737 family or the wide-body aircraft

🌍 The challenges and opportunities that will determine the growth of the African aviation market? 

📦 The freighter market and interest in passenger to freighter conversions. Is this a long-term trend? 

🌿 Sustainability. How Boeing is supporting the shift to sustainability and the technologies it believes will support the transformation
