NEWS WTTC: African open skies key to reaching tourism potential

African states must work together to open the continent’s skies in order to maximise the potential of the tourism sector, according to World Travel & Tourism Council president David Scowsill. Speaking at the World Routes Strategy Summit in Durban, Scowsill hailed the success of air liberalising initiatives across the world and called on Africa’s governments to put aside decades of differences, to heed the success of open skies reforms across the world by fully implementing open skies across the continent.
