Aviation Business Personality of the Year

Max O Cisse, owner and CEO of African Open Sky, receives the award for Aviation Business Personality of the Year in Africa. Meeting at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition taking place in Geneva we discuss the creation of African Open Sky as well as its present and future.

The challenge was to “open the African sky”, which meant to facilitate all permit processes and to provide updated information, such as NOTAMs and contact details, at all airports in Africa.

Over the years, AOS has become the leading aviation services company in Africa with more than 50 offices and representations across the continent

It also aimed to establish pay for the on-ground charges on behalf of the crew, avoiding unnecessary and expensive third party charges by co-ordinating flights using its own staff to offer top-quality services at reasonable prices. Fortunately, it has not been too difficult to solve these problems. AOS is full of dynamic professionals, and has built a strong network of dedicated aviation workers.

Over the years, AOS has become the leading aviation services company in Africa with more than 50 offices and representations across the continent (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Gabon, Guinea Bissau, Guinea Conakry, Kenya, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Sudan, Tanzania, Togo and many more), plus its regional branch in the United Arab Emirates, which was established to be close to its partners in the Middle East.
