Erik Venter is CEO of South -based Comair.   Mr Venter speaks with us about his airline and the it faces, as well as the opportunities, of operating in South Africa.  Comair has been operating profitably for over 60 years.  But it gets tougher as the state-owned competition continues to lose money and has a seemingly bottomless taxpayer funded bank account.  Meanwhile a plucky team at Comair runs the highest domestic service as a British Airways franchise while at the same time operating its own LCC (Kulula).  Looking ahead Comair must seek other markets given the limited size of the South African travel market.  Mr Venter drops hints at an hub to the north which could ultimately allow its -800NGs to serve the EU.
