The aviation sector sits at the heart of any country, region or city’s competitiveness agenda for the simple reason that it connects people, their ideas, their know-how and their capital with the world.
While air transport is a public service, aviation is a tool for competitiveness, a necessity for trade and investment, and a critical factor for integration within the global economy. Aviation provides the safest, fastest, and most reliable transportation service for people and high-value cargo. For governments, it has become an essential tool – central to achieving long-term outcomes for economic development, job creation and value creation.
Consulum works with governments at the highest level, ministries of transport and infrastructure, civil aviation authorities, ministries of tourism, tourism boards and other institutions that drive the aviation and air connectivity agendas.
