Sub-Saharan Africa's air transport, though low in overall volume when compared to other regions in the world, has experienced significant growth in the last decade, both in international and domestic traffic.

In addition, Africa faces challenges in safety oversight, as well as having many smaller non-viable state-owned carriers.
