Freedom Airline is on the forefront of driving the economic agenda of Africa, by fostering integration through service provision. The airline believes in the economic potential of the Horn of Africa, which has largely been portrayed as high risk.
But despite the obvious security challenges, the Horn of Africa remains strategic to the economic future of the African Continent, especially in the wake of the ratification of Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA) agreement.
The CFTA is seen as an important opportunity for African countries to pursue economic development in an increasingly globalized world.
Experts believe eliminating tariffs will help African countries boost economic growth, transform their economies and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The strategic importance of Horn of Africa comes from it being the source of the Nile and a gate to the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden. Its location on one side of some of the world’s major trade sea lanes and land routes gives it vital importance.
Freedom Airline believes that providing reliable air transport services for passenger and cargo will go a long way in augmenting the economic integration efforts, which will intron translate into economic growth for the region.
