AviaDev Insight is the first podcast dedicated to the African aviation industry.

We bring prominent industry voices to the table to establish the "ground truth" in an informal and candid fashion.

The podcast was created by Jon Howell, Founder and Managing Director of AviaDev Africa, Africa's premier event dedicated to developing air connectivity.

A real highlight of the event is presenting the Ato Girma Wake Award for an outstanding contribution to route development in Africa.

This year's winner was Sanjeev Gadhia CEO of Astral aviation and that episode is freely available on the podcast as episode 212.

However, we couldn't resist dipping into the back catalog to release the interview AviaDev CEO Jon Howell did with Ato Girma back on stage in Kigali at AviaDev 2017.

In this episode, you will hear Girma talk about the following:

🛫 His career journey

🛫 What he would have been if he hadn’t become an aviator

🛫 Ethiopian Airlines growth strategy

🛫 The national carrier conundrum


Watch out for the incredible anecdote about a meeting with Sir Richard Branson.
