South African Airways Set to Resume Flights to Blantyre
South African Airways (SAA) has advised customers that the airline is likely to resume flights between Johannesburg and Blantyre, Malawi on Saturday, 2 February 2019.
The airline had on 18 January, cancelled flights between the two cities after the audit process conducted at the Chileka International Airport in Blantyre confirmed that the airport was not fully compliant with minimum standards required for its operations.
The airline, working together with the Malawian authorities as well as stakeholders such as the Malawian Ministry of Transport and the local municipality in Blantyre, have implemented the required interventions to return the airport to expected levels for safe operations.
Pending approval from the South African Civil Aviation Authority SACAA, it is anticipated that SAA will resume flights to Blantyre on Saturday, 2 February 2019.
