  • EDITORIAL: SA scores an own goal

    ONE thing that can be said about Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba: when he takes a view, however misguided, he stands firm. In the case of new visa regulations, SA is only just starting to count the cost in terms of lost tourist visits, particularly from fast-growing markets such as China and India. It is not clear what problem Mr Gigaba was trying to fix when he introduced the regulations last year, but they have proved controversial. There has been blanket condemnation from the tourist industry, in particular of the demands for extra documentation for child travellers, and the requirement that tourists apply for visas in person.

  • Lufthansa CEO faces tough test after Germanwings crash

    After an already troubled first year as CEO of Lufthansa, Carsten Spohr must now deal with the aftermath of the Germanwings disaster whilst making the airline group fit to compete for the future. The crash in the French Alps, believed to have been deliberately caused by co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, happened while Lufthansa is trying to halt declining ticket prices, expand low-cost operations, reduce staff costs and bring an end to a series of pilot strikes. Spohr, a qualified pilot, has been trying to follow the example of rival IAG, the parent company of British Airways, Iberia and Vueling, by cutting staff costs to make Lufthansa more competitive. Lufthansa says it needs to bring its costs down so it can compete with short-haul rivals Ryanair and easyJet , as well as the likes of Emirates and Turkish Airlines on lucrative long-haul routes.
