The airline failed to launch operations in South Africa in May-2013 however it plans to commence operations from the country in Jul-2013. Mr Haji-Ioannou said, “Africa is a difficult place to do business — it is not open skies” and said, “We will see what happens — I can’t say it will be a success in five years, but it is risky”.
