According to data released by travel data provider ForwardKeys, current forward flight bookings within Africa are up by 6.2 percent from May to October, compared with the same time last year.
The company, which monitors future travel patterns by analysing 14 million reservation transactions each day, says that Intra-Africa bookings comprise 10 percent of international flights made to Africa. The ForwardKeys data was produced in partnership with AviaDev Africa, a route planning and development conference, being launched by Bench Events in Kigali, Rwanda.
“The ForwardKeys data provides a valuable opportunity to look ahead and see how air travel to and within Africa is growing,” says Jonathan Worsley, chairman, Bench Events.
