Ichikowitz stressed that the low cost airline model was borne out of the need to connect Africans and bring innovations to reality. He said the need for cheap and standard air flights around Africa would further help connect people of Africa thereby giving room for innovation through interaction.
The philanthropist also hinted that the whole concept was created in this conference two years ago in Gabon. It has been used in sub Sahara Africa and now we are ready to connect the whole Africa continent.
