Special INSIGHT Report: Why Collins Aerospace is stepping up its game in Africa

Collins Aerospace, now part of Raytheon Technologies, the third largest OEM in the world - is making a drive into emerging markets and bringing with it a host of new technologies.

In this special INSIGHT report, we meet the new regional director for Africa, Jens Ziesel and hear how he sees the future for Africa and its aviation industry.

 
Austrian-born Ziesel shares his thoughts on how African carriers can skip a generation of investment in technology by European and American airlines with its current focus on new models and time-saving and money-saving digital assets.
 
African airports too are set for change. 
 
They are already working on faster, easier, seamless passenger experience at the airports and embracing technology that will change the touch points for the passengers going through at the airport, like arrival, check in, baggage drop, security, access, security screening, outbound border control, boarding the in-flight, cabin experience, inbound border control, and the airport departure. 
 
Ziesel talks too about open skies and the greater liberalisation of movement and how airlines including start-ups are right to be positive about the future.
