Johannesburg - Transformation is important in advancing the wishes of general society, but South Africa is still a long way from achieving real transformation in the domestic aviation sector.
 
In the last few months I have been to a number of seminars and committee meetings of the domestic aviation industry. I can say that I have been further exposed to the inside – out of the real world of the domestic aviation industry. I can safely conclude that the local aviation industry needs a thorough mop-up for real change to take shape.

While there is no doubt that South Africa needs to achieve a revolution across all economic sectors, I have seen how a few organisations are working to stabilise or grow the domestic aviation market. However, these organisations are not receiving the necessary support from other aviation industry players or individuals.
    
What I see is that some influential aviation players are missing the point, with only a handful of individuals working purposefully to unite the domestic market. There are also those that are working hard, but are afraid to speak out in fear of upsetting established players in the market.

South Africa’s domestic aviation industry requires bonding of the different social backgrounds in the market through effective and robust transformation processes. Many are talking across various platforms, but they are talking in different languages, and there is misunderstanding and, therefore, slow progress towards meaningful transformation.
