The Conference of the African Ministers responsible for Civil Aviation which was held in Yamoussoukro, Cote d'lvoire, in October 1988 made a binding declaration to integrate the national airlines of African States to create few viable multinational airlines. The declaration was preceded by a thorough evaluation of the current trend of the air transport industry and it’s possible impact on the development of African airlines. In the West African sub-region the establishment of one airline as an international flag carrier of all the member States of the Economic Commission of West African States (ECOWAS) is recommended as the final objective of the Yamoussoukro Declaration. The survey of nine airlines in the sub-region indicates that there are three groups of airlines with distinct operational capabilities and the same urgent problems. A practical approach to implement the first and the second phases of the Declaration should be based on a community of interests and should bring together all airlines facing the same or similar problems.
