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.

In this episode, we dive into a topic that has been dominating conversations over the last couple of years, specifically aviation’s role in supporting the drive towards net zero and a more sustainable industry.

To do this I am joined by Dirk Singer, the Head of Sustainability at Simpliflying, a consulting firm that is dedicated to supporting a greener and more environmentally sustainable future for air travel. 

Together we discuss:

  • How best to address the topic of sustainability with industry stakeholders?
  • What Simpliflying is aiming to achieve with the book? 
  • Should Africa be subject to the same sustainability targets as everyone else, when its aviation industry is unprofitable?
  • Who should finance sustainability?
  • What can African aviation and governmental stakeholders be doing now to capitalise on the opportunity?
