    CSIR setting up a reference smart factory to stimulate local manufacturing

    The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) is going to set up a National Reference Smart Factory on its main campus in Pretoria/Tshwane. This will play a key part in achieving a major CSIR objective – the revitalisation and modernisation of the South African manufacturing industry. “South African manufacturing is at an all-time low,” points out CSIR Manufacturing Cluster Executive Manager Martin Sanne. “There was some growth last year, but that was in agri-processing. The metals industry is really down.”

    Trade wars continue to hurt air freight, except in Africa and Latin America

    The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has reported that the ongoing and deepening trade war between the US and China has continued to drive air freight demand down. Air cargo is measured in terms of freight (metric) ton kilometres (FTKs). (FTKs are the number of metric tons carried multiplied by the number of kilometres travelled.)

    The association released its latest data on global air freight markets on Thursday, covering July. Air cargo demand in July 2019 was 3.2% down on the figure for July 2018. This made July the ninth month in a row in which air freight demand was down, year-on-year.

    “Trade tensions are weighing heavily on the entire air cargo industry,” highlighted IATA Director General and CEO Alexandre de Juniac. “Higher tariffs are disrupting not only transpacific supply chains but also worldwide trade lanes.”

    Transformation still lacking in aviation – Parliamentary Committee

    While on a week-long oversight visit to Johannesburg this week, Parliament’s Portfolio Committee on Transport has called for continuing demographic transformation in the country’s aviation sector. But the Committee did express satisfaction with the governance of the aviation agencies it visited, particularly the Air Traffic & Navigation Services (ATNS).

    “Entities need to work hard on transformation targets, it is what is best for the country and the previously disadvantaged persons,” affirmed Committee Chairperson Mosebenzi Zwane. “This has got to be a constant matter entities report achievable targets on.” (Zwane, who was Mineral Resources Minister in the previous administration of President Jacob Zuma, and before that Member of the Executive Council for Agriculture in the Free State Provincial Government, has been implicated in major corruption scandals.)

    “This [aviation] is a sector that can make or break our economy, this sector generates billions of rands,” he asserted. Transformation had to be all-inclusive and embrace all elements of aviation, including management, procurement of goods, and human capital.

    SAA announces interim measures to maintain Johannesburg-Blantyre route

    South African Airways (SAA) announced on Friday that the continued closure of the main runway at the Chileka International Airport at Blantyre, Malawi, had forced it to make alternative flight arrangements for passengers travelling between Johannesburg and Blantyre. Chileka’s main runway has been closed for upgrade and maintenance work since late April.

    The airport authorities in Malawi recently informed SAA that this work would take significantly longer than originally hoped. The main runway would have to stay closed until October 31. Chileka’s secondary, or auxiliary, runway remains open and operational, but SAA aircraft cannot use it.

    “SAA customers will therefore travel between Johannesburg and Lilongwe [Malawi] on SAA operated aircraft and further travel between Lilongwe and Blantyre on Ethiopian Airlines, for the period 31 August 2019 until 31 October 2019,” explained SAA Spokesperson Tlali Tlali. “This is an interim travel plan intended to avoid any service disruptions.”
