on the African continent will be saturated by 2020.” (Aviation Benefits Report, 2019). Another problem that Africa faces is a shortage of the necessary skills required by aviation such as adequately trained pilots, air traffic controllers, and engineers. If they do not improve on the quality and quantity to meet current and future requirements as it pertains to growth and new technology. If Africa can overcome these obstacles, then they could easily generate a large amount of growth with the biggest impact coming from tourism. “By 2036, it is forecasted that the impact of air transport and the tourism it facilitates in Africa will have grown to support 9.8 million jobs (60 percent more than in 2016) and a USD 159 billion contribution to GDP (an increase of 184 percent).” (Aviation Benefits Report, 2019) In conclusion, Africa has the greatest potential for growth among the regions. If they want to succeed in generating that potential growth, they will have to overcome funding issues, obtain adequate skills, and the amount of better-trained personnel in all skillsets. If they will focus on the aviation section and start overcoming those obstacles then ticket prices will drop thus, in turn, increasing the amount of revenue they can generate.
