Pratt & Whitney Canada expects to assemble and ground test the first PW800 demonstrator “some time this year,” P&WC president John Saabas told AIN during Pratt & Whitney’s “Media Day” event, held last month in Hartford, Conn. The PW800, which had won a place on the now defunct Cessna Citation Columbus in 2008, lost its only application when the program was suspended in 2009.

SA Express, the state-owned domestic and regional South African airline, has signed a deal with the Dube Trade Port economic zone at Durban’s King Shaka International Airport (KSIA) to help promote trade among the Southern African Development Community (SADC), a regional trade bloc.

Based at Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International, the airline plans greater movement of passengers and cargo at KSIA after President Jacob Zuma said he wanted the site to become South Africa’s leading logistics hub.
