Long-standing African Airlines Association (AFRAA) secretary general Christian Folly-Kossi is to step down when his current term comes to an end in November.
Folly-Kossi has run AFRAA since 2000 but, after serving two consecutive five-year terms, he is planning to hand over to a new secretary general at AFRAA's annual general meeting in November.
Prior to joining AFRAA, Folly-Kossi spent 21 years with pan-African carrier Air Afrique. Here he held various commercial and financial management positions before ultimately becoming special advisor to the executive chairman, with responsibility for corporate strategy as well as board and member state relations.
Folly-Kossi has also been advisor to various African governments, including special advisor to the prime minister of Togo and the Cote d'Ivoire head of state.
An AFRAA representative says the body is seeking a replacement. The position is based in Nairobi, Kenya, and the deadline for applications is 15 August.
