    World airline and weather bodies agree to increase data collection cooperation

    The International Air Transport Association (Iata) – the representative body of the global airline industry – and the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) have signed an agreement to expand automated meteorological data reporting by commercial aircraft. Currently, some 40 airlines and several thousand airliners and freighter aircraft participate in the WMO’s Aircraft Meteorological Data Relay (Amdar) system.  Amdar provides the WMO with coverage of areas where there are few other meteorological data sources. The new Iata/WMO agreement is expected to significantly increase the number of airlines participating in the programme.

    ACSA reports solid 2019/20 results but warns of Covid-19 impacts going forward

    The State-owned Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) published its results for the 2019/2020 financial year on Tuesday. ACSA owns and operates nine South African airports, including Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International, Cape Town International, and Durban’s King Shaka International. It is also a member of the consortia that run Guarulhos (São Paulo) International Airport in Brazil and Chhatrapati Shivaji (Mumbai) International Airport in India.  Unlike many other State-owned companies, since it was set up 26 years ago, ACSA has (except for one year) been, and remains, profitable and well run. Its financial year runs from April 1 to March 31, and the just published results cover the financial year that ended on March 31 this year. South Africa’s national lockdown against the Covid-19 pandemic commenced on March 27. However, other countries instituted travel bans and lockdowns earlier.

    Local airline Airlink announces change of its official name

    South African private sector airline Airlink has announced that it has formally changed its name – to Airlink. Although the airline has been publicly using the name Airlink for some months now, its official, legal, name was SA Airlink. Now its official name is the same as its public name. This step was taken to emphasise that the carrier is a totally independent airline For 23 years, Airlink had had a franchise agreement with State-owned national flag carrier South African Airways (SAA). That was ended earlier this year and Airlink started operating and issuing tickets under its own 4Z code (whereas previously it had used SAA’s SA code) and its tickets are no longer sold via the SAA website but through its own flyairlink website. Airlink has subsequently entered into interline agreements with a number of major global airlines, namely Air France, British Airways, Emirates, KLM, Qatar Airways and United.
