    <p>Hilka Birns/CAPE TOWN </p> <p>A new South African domestic airline, Air Gulf, says it is poised to launch low-fare services. </p> <p>The airline plans to operate Tupolev Tu-154 and Yakovlev Yak-42 jets, but the aircraft still have to undergo an airworthiness inspection and certification by the South African Civil Aviation Authority. </p> <p>Civil aviation regulators say an immediate launch is unlikely because the carrier has not yet applied for a licence from the Department of Transport. </p> <p>Cape Town-based businesswoman Shahnaaz Narker will reportedly own Air Gulf.
