-

1 min read

The Civil Aviation Authority has downgraded the Mthatha airport effective from Friday 25 January 2019 following a negative audit finding against it. In light of this, SA Express advises customers that the airline is implementing flight cancellations between Johannesburg and Mthatha.

In a statement the airline said “We are working jointly with the Eastern Cape provincial government authorities to find a speedy solution so that operations at the airport can resume. We apologise to our passengers and customers for the inconvenience caused by these cancellations, which are outside of our control.”

Affected customers are requested to call SA Express Customer Care on 011 978 2355. All booked passengers for the period will be fully refunded.
