Our Presence in Africa

Our partnerships in Africa date back more than 75 years and Boeing airplanes form the backbone of the continent's commercial fleet with more than 60 airline customers operating around 500 airplanes, representing approximately 70% of the airplane market currently in service across the continent.

Graced by vast natural resources and an expanding young workforce, Africa is forecast to see strong traffic and airplane demand growth in the next two decades. Boeing forecasts that African carriers will require 1,015 new jet aircraft deliveries over the next 20 years, 79% for growth of the current fleet. Boeing is firmly committed to this potential.

Our investments in Africa have helped grow the local aerospace sector, creating jobs and driving innovation for mutual benefit. Boeing works with eight suppliers across six markets in Africa, with partnerships valued at approximately $41 million per year.

Since 2006, Boeing has invested over $12.1M in community outreach programs across Africa, all focused on providing systemic improvements in education and economic empowerment for those in poverty.

Bernie Dunn is currently the president of Boeing Africa, and also covers Turkey and the Middle East region. Our office is located in Johannesburg, South Africa, in addition to having field service representatives with commercial customers across the continent.
