Bench Events aviation specialist Jon Howell speaks with Mario Fulgoni about how, as CEO of Cardiff Aviation, he got involved with the national carrier of Djibouti and what part Iron Maiden played..?
The focus moves quickly to the fast vs slow rise of low-cost carriers in Africa and some of the institutional challenges that may be holding the low-cost opportunity back. What do African national carriers need to do with their routes, landing fees, fuel costs, etc to help build out a similar market to Europe, the US and Asia?
Hear Mario’s thoughts on these issues as well as how he defines Air Djibouti in terms of its business model and its future in passenger services.
