Mauritius – The Investment Platform for Aircraft Financing in Africa

December 2012 Jason Piney

As reported in Airfinance Journal in June 2012, the African aviation market is growing at a rapid rate. This looks set to continue for the foreseeable future with Boeing forecasting that Africa will need 710 new aircraft (worth about US$80 billion) in the 20‐year period to 2029 and Airbus suggesting a figure of 1,270 new aircraft for the same period. Growth is being led through demand for aircraft from both of these established players. Ethiopian Airlines, South African Airways and Kenya Airways are expanding and modernising their fleets, as well as more recently established airlines breaking into the market, such as Arik Air in Nigeria, Fly540 in Kenya and 1Time in South Africa.
