South African Airways Cancels International and Regional Operations
South African Airways (SAA) has, with immediate effect, suspended all international and regional operations until 31 May 2020 in response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.
International flights include those to Washington DC and New York, JFK, London, Heathrow, Frankfurt and Munich as well as Perth and São Paulo. All of which are now cancelled.
Regional flights include those to Accra, Lusaka, Harare, Victoria Falls, Windhoek, Lagos, Entebbe, Livingstone, Blantyre & Lilongwe, Nairobi, Kinshasa, Dar es Salaam and Maputo.
South African Airways, will however, continue to operate on its domestic routes.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and attendant travel restrictions, resulted in substantial decline in demand for air travel, causing many airlines across the world to ground aircraft and cancel flights.
