South African Airways (SAA) says it will only get an update later on Monday evening on the situation at Hong Kong International Airport and whether flights can be resumed to and from the country.
South African Airways has introduced a new state of the art aircraft that will service New York. The ultra-long haul aircraft will travel non-stop between Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo and John F. Kennedy international airports.
SAA has announced a reduction in flights between Johannesburg and East London due to low seasonal demand.
SAA says it has begun the process of verifying the credentials of all its pilots. This follows a revelation by the carrier that a senior pilot had a fraudulent pilot’s license and had worked at SAA for over two decades.
South African Airways (SAA) spokesperson Tlali Tlali says the state airline will still need financial assistance from stakeholders to enable it to be restructured.
