Apave supports the development of airport skills in Senegal

At the ACI Africa (Airports Council International - Africa) regional conference held in Dakar from 14 to 20 October 2023, the Apave Group signed an agreement with the Académie Internationale des Métiers de l'Aviation Civile du Sénégal (AIMAC).

Innovation and sustainable development

The ACI Africa regional conference is a key event for the airport community, which meets twice a year to examine strategic issues relating to their sector. Under the theme of "resilience through innovation", this year's conference addressed strategic issues such as safety, technology, innovation, the environment, sustainable development and the economy, among others. The event broke the attendance record, with 400 delegates from all over the world taking part.

Two major signatures

During the conference, the Apave Group was able to confirm its ability to support airport operators around the world with two signatures:

  • The first signature concerns the agreement between Apave and the Académie Internationale des Métiers de l'Aviation Civile, an entity of the Aéroport International Blaise Diagne (AIBD), to promote the development of local skills in the airport handling professions and ensure compliance with the regulatory framework.
  • The second signature concerns the approval of Camas, an Apave Group subsidiary specialising in airport training, by the Agence Nationale de l'Aviation Civile et de la Météorologie (ANACIM) to provide initial training for cabin crew.


These two contracts strengthen Apave's position as a trusted partner for airport operators worldwide, helping them to manage their industrial, human, environmental and digital risks. 

"A leader in health and safety training, Apave has been helping economic players for many years to develop their skills in order to prevent and control the risks associated with their activities. We are delighted with these two contracts, which confirm our desire to be a trusted partner for players in the airport sector by supporting the development of local skills," says Daouda BA, Managing Director of Apave Sahel, the Apave Group's Senegalese subsidiary.
