Although occupying over one-fifth of the world's land mass and accounting for 11% of its population, this Region's share of international scheduled passenger services is only about 5%, while for freight it is just over 3%; yet, Africa's overall development in the next decade depends heavily on improvements and expansion of its air transport services and infrasture. In this article, the development of air passenger and freight services to, from, and within the region is reviewed, and the outlook for growth of African air traffic in 1977-1986 is discussed. The obstacles to future air transport development are noted, and some remedial actions are proposed.
