Lonrho: “The Company has seen short-term delays affect the speed of deployment in some of the growth businesses such as the roll out of Fly540 Angola but these are now coming on track and delivering promising results. It is anticipated that there will be 10 routes operational in Angola by the end of the year with more following in FY12. Margins in the aviation division in Kenya remain under pressure due to high levels of competition in the Kenyan market,” Company statement. Source: Lonrho, 05-May-2011.
