SAA resumes Blantyre services

The Chileka international airport in Blantyre.

South African Airways (SAA) has resumed flights between Johannesburg and Malawi, after the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) reported over the weekend that it was satisfied with the measures taken to respond to the situation at the airport in Blantyre.

“We are pleased that we are able to reinstate flights between the two points following the implementation of our corrective action plan. The plan was a battery of remedial interventions aimed at curing or responding to the audit findings,” said SAA spokesperson, Tlali.

Operations to the airport were suspended on 18 January after it emerged that the state of the airport did not fully comply with conditions set out in its operating licence.

SAA operates three weekly flights between Johannesburg and Blantyre on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
