It is said that nature abhors vacuum. With the opportunities in the European continent and America having become saturated, the airfreight industry is on the look- out for fresh pastures. The African continent presents this ideal opportunity. On the one hand, Africa is a source for rich mineral and oil resources which are in demand as raw materials in the industrially developed countries and on the other, Africa as a continent in dire need of economic growth to sustain itself. In the present day world, the air freight industry is a direct indicator of and contributor to the economic growth of a nation. In a global village, a continent larger than the size of Europe and America put together cannot afford to remain in isolation from the developments around it. Air freight, is therefore, a necessity for Africa to sustain itself.
