I-Africa Aviation: A Lifeline for Tourism and Economies

I-AviaDev

Imizila emisha yezindiza idingeka ngokushesha e-Afrika, futhi amabhodi kazwelonke wezokuvakasha kufanele athathe noma yiliphi ithuba lokuthuthukisa lokhu ukuze kuthuthukiswe umnotho wamazwe awo. I-Afrika inamaphesenti angu-1.9 kuphela abagibeli bezindiza emhlabeni wonke kanye nezimpahla zezindiza.

Emhlanganweni wokucobelelana ngolwazi we-AviaDev Africa wakamuva, obubanjwe ngokubambisana ne-SADC Business Council Tourism Alliance, abaphathi bezindiza bagcizelele ukuthi amandla amabhodi ezokuvakasha asekusebenziseni imininingwane yezimakethe kanye nobudlelwano bezimboni ukuze bakholwe abathwali abangabazayo ukuthi imizila emisha iyasebenza isikhathi eside.

“Ezokuvakasha zingaphezu nje kokuvakashela izindawo zokungcebeleka. Ezokuvakasha ziwumsebenzi obalulekile wezomnotho odinga ukucabanga kwamasu nokusebenzisana emikhakheni yonke,” kusho u-Kojo Bentum-Williams, uchwepheshe oMkhulu wezokuXhumana e-Afrika we-UN Tourism.

USylvain Bosc, owayeyiChief Commercial Officer kwa-SAA kanye ne-Fastjet, ugcizelele ukubaluleka kokubonisa inzuzo eqhubekayo. “Izinhlangano zokumaketha zendawo okuyiwa kuyo (DMOs) kumele zithengise umbono wesikhathi eside ogqamisa amathuba okukhula kwendawo okuyiwa kuyo kanye nomthelela wezomnotho,” usho kanje. "Izisusa zokudala ezifana nokuthengisa ngokubambisana, ukunciphisa izindleko zezindiza, nokubala inani labagibeli kungaba namandla kunoxhaso oluqondile."

U-Bosc uphawule ukuthi ama-DMO adinga “ukuletha ukukhanya okusha” kudatha yezindiza esezinayo ngokunikeza imininingwane ngentuthuko yezomnotho yasendaweni ezayo njengezimayini ezintsha noma amaphrojekthi wengqalasizinda angaqhuba ithrafikhi yezinkampani. “Imininingwane yasendaweni inganikeza izinkampani zezindiza ukuzethemba ezikudingayo ukuze zitshale emizileni emisha,” esho.

U-Natalia Rosa, onguMholi Womklamo we-SADC Business Council Tourism Alliance, ugcizelele indima ebalulekile yezindiza ekuthuthukisweni kwesifunda: “Indiza ayiyona into ewubukhazikhazi, iwumgogodla womnotho wesimanje wesifunda. Ukuxhumana emoyeni okuthuthukisiwe kuvula izinzuzo eziningi: kwenza uhambo lube lula, luvule iminyango yezimakethe ezintsha zezokuvakasha, futhi luqinise ubuhlobo bezomnotho besifunda.”

U-Gavin Eccles, oyiNhloko ye-Vertical Vertical kwa-BAE Ventures, ugcizelele ukuthi amabhodi ezokuvakasha kufanele abe “setafuleni” namacala aphoqelelayo asekelwa ulwazi lwemakethe yendawo, izibopho zokuhweba kwezokuvakasha, kanye nezindawo zokuthengisa eziyingqayizivele izindiza ezivame ukuntula.

"Amabhodi ezokuvakasha akufanele ahlinzeke ngedatha kuphela kodwa futhi anikeze umbono wendawo okungenzeka ukuthi izindiza zezindiza zingenawo," kusho u-Eccles, ecaphuna umkhiqizo wase-India ophumelele "I-Incredible India" ebukela phansi ukuxhumana okungalungile.

Ukubambisana kwesifunda, njengezinqubomgomo zama-visa ezivumelanisiwe, ukukhuthazwa kohambo lokusebenzisana, kanye nokusetshenziswa kwezimali zokongiwa kwemvelo, nakho kungaba nomthelela ekuxhaseni ngezimali ukuthuthukiswa kwemizila. Kodwa-ke, weluleka u-Tim Harris ovela ku-Helm Growth Advisors ukuthi ukubeka phambili ukugcinwa nokwandiswa kwezinsizakalo zezindiza zamanje kufanele kuze ngaphambi kokuheha imizila emisha.

Ngenkathi uxhaso oluqondile lubhekene nemibuzo yokusimama, u-Bentum-Williams uthe ezinye izikhuthazo zenza "indawo yokwethenjwa" ibe nezindiza ezigxile enzuzweni.

“Kunesidingo sokushintsha okulandisayo kusukela ekukhokheleni izinkampani zezindiza nje ukuya emizileni endizayo kuye ekudaleni indawo yokwethenjwa nokuzethemba,” usho kanje.

U-Jillian Blackbeard, oyi-CEO ye-Africa's Eden Tourism Association, ugqamise ukubambisana okuyimpumelelo ne-Proflight ngokusebenzisa ababambiqhaza basendaweni kanye nokusekelwa kwezohwebo, ukwakha ukuzethemba kwezindiza ngaphandle kwezinzuzo ezinkulu.

“Sisebenze eduze ne-Proflight kanye nababambiqhaza bendawo ukuze siqinisekise ukuthi imizila isekelwa uhwebo kanye nemboni ezimele, okwasiza ekwakheni ukuzethemba enkampanini yezindiza futhi kwaholela ekuthuthukisweni komzila oyimpumelelo ngaphandle kokukhuthazwa okubalulekile kwezezimali,” kwabelwana ngo-Blackbeard.

Imizamo edidiyelwe yokusiza ubungcweti bezindawo okuyiwa kuzo ama-DMO ingavula uxhumo olukhuphukile - umzila wokuphila kweminotho yezokuvakasha yase-Afrika osekunesikhathi eside igxilile ngenxa yezixhumanisi zomoya ezingezinhle.

Umhlangano wokucobelelana ngolwazi we-AviaDev Africa waklanywa njengenkundla yesenzo sokubhekana nezinselelo zemboni yezokundiza kanye nokusebenzisana ezisombululweni.

I-SADC Business Council Tourism Alliance iyinhlangano engenzi nzuzo, esekelwe ebulungwini esebenza njengomgqugquzeli wokuthuthukiswa kwezokuvakasha nezokuvakasha ukuya, ukusuka, kanye nangaphakathi kwesifunda se-Southern African Development Community (SADC).

Iphethwe ngabakwa I-SADC Business Council, I-Tourism Business Alliance ihlose ukuhlanganisa izinhlangano ezizimele eziphezulu esifundeni sonke kanye nabanye ababambiqhaza bezokuvakasha bezinkampani ezizimele nezikahulumeni kanye nozakwethu ukuze kukhuliswe inani, ikhwalithi, nokukhula okusimeme kohambo nezokuvakasha ukuya, kusukela, nangaphakathi kwesifunda se-SADC.
