South African Airways (SAA) announced today, November 20 that it intends to resume selected flights from Johannesburg to Cape Town, Durban and Victoria Falls, with effect from Thursday, 21 November 2019. 

SAA is continuing to operate all international flights on an ongoing basis and without disruption. The airline is now also successfully operating services to six destinations on the African continent, namely Accra, Lagos, Lusaka, Maputo, Windhoek and Harare on an ongoing basis. 

“We are pleased that SAA is now able to increase services and to offer our customers more flights on Domestic and on the African continent and that all our International flights are back on schedule. It is also important to assure SAA’s customers that our operations are safe and that the airline will never compromise on this core responsibility,” said Philip Saunders, SAA’s Chief Commercial Officer.

Customers travelling on SAA’s Regional network to Victoria Falls, Cape Town and Durban will be rebooked on the reinstated services and contacted accordingly.  

SAA will seek to rebook customers travelling on other Regional routes (points on the African Continent) wherever possible. 

The airline is continuing to work with its partner airlines, Mango and SA Airlink, to re-book all customers travelling on domestic services for Thursday 21 November 2019 and Friday 22 November 2019.

“Once again, we apologise to all our passengers for all the inconvenience caused. We are continuing discussions with labour and remain committed to reach a prompt resolution in the best interests of all parties,” Saunders said.

Customers are requested not to travel to their departure airport unless they are in possession of a rebooked itinerary.

Those seeking a refund or wishing to rebook their travel on a future SAA service have until 30 November 2019 to finalise their arrangements.
