Cape Town - The reduction in tariffs announced by Airports Company SA (Acsa) is welcome relief to airlines and the flying public, but does not go far enough, Erik Venter, CEO of Comair, told Fin24 on Thursday.

Comair operates under its low-fare airline brand, kulula.com, as well as under the British Airways livery, as part of its British Airways license agreement.

Acsa announced earlier on Thursday that a cut in airport charges of 35.5% for the 2017/18 financial year will be implemented as from 1 April 2017. It will be followed by an increase in charges of 5.8% in the 2018/19 financial year and an increase of 7.4% in the 2019/20 financial year.
