    South Africa not the gateway to Africa, warns research house

    South Africa is not, as is so often punted, the gateway to Africa, says Africa House director Duncan Bonnett – this is a mere “influence illusion”. The country is more a gateway to Southern African, and not even all of that.

    Airbus launches extra long range version of its best-selling airliner family

    At the Paris Air Show on Monday, global major aerospace group Airbus launched the latest version of its A321neo (new engine option) single-aisle airliner (itself the largest model in the A320neo family). This is the A321XLR, XLR standing for extra long range. This new version, which will enter service in 2023, will have a range of up to 4 700 nautical miles (about 8 700 km), 15% greater than the range of the current A321LR (long-range) version. It will also deliver 30% less fuel consumption per seat than previous generation competitor types.

    That same day the manufacturer also announced that Lebanese flag carrier Middle East Airlines had become the launch customer for the type, by signing a firm order for four A321XLRs. Airbus separately reported that day that the Air Lease Corporation had signed a Letter of Intent for 27 A321XLRs (along with 23 standard A321neos and 50 A220-300s). On Tuesday it announced that it had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Philippines low cost carrier Cebu Pacific for ten A321XLRs (plus 16 A330neos and 5 A320neos).

    “With this added range, airlines will be able to operate a lower-cost single-aisle aircraft on longer and less heavily travelled routes – many of which can only now be served by larger and less efficient wide-body aircraft,” explained Airbus in its press release. “This will enable operators to open new world-wide routes such as India to Europe or China to Australia, as well as further extending the Family’s non-stop reach on direct transatlantic flights between continental Europe and the Americas.”

    Cargo handled by Kenya’s Mombasa port up 6% in eleven months to May

    Kenya’s main port of Mombasa handled 6.3% more cargo in the last eleven months thanks to higher efficiency, a surge in imports and greater capacity after the port was expanded, the facility’s management said on Monday. The rise in cargoes came despite uncertainty after 75 tax agency staff including customs workers were arrested last month over allegations of fraudulent clearance of merchandise among other charges.

    South African Express says that it is turning itself around

    South African State-owned regional airline SA Express (SAX) affirmed on Friday that it was making substantial progress in its turnaround programme. It has also been taking action against employees found to have been engaged in wrongdoing.

    All those employees who have been charged with offences, and found to be guilty, have been fired from the airline. In those cases in which the offences involve alleged violations of the law, the airline has opened criminal cases. It will use legal means to recoup any losses that were the result of these various offences.

    SAX also gave the assurance that the airline was not facing imminent liquidation because of a court action being brought against it by a service provider. It described such claims as “false rumours”.
