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.

For this episode, we find ourselves in Nairobi Kenya, where the AviaDev Africa conference will take place in June.

Our Host partners for the event are the Kenya Airports Authority, an autonomous body charged with the responsibility of managing all airports across Kenya.

They are also the entity that is actively involved in route development, the main focus of AviaDev, namely engaging the airlines to start or expand their services to Kenya’s airports.

In this episode, I am joined by Jacob Bwana, Head of Marketing and Business Development at KAA and together we discuss:

The post-covid recovery and resurgence.

Where KAA sees gaps in the destinations served both within Africa and outside the continent

How KAA works with other stakeholders to attract and retain airlines? 

The Cargo market opportunity.  Is the market softening or continuing to grow and how is KAA supporting its development?

An update on infrastructural development plans within the portfolio?

What KAA hopes to achieve from hosting AviaDev Africa in Nairobi?
