SAA Increases Capacity To Meet Demand


South African Airways (SAA) notes the unfortunate decision by Comair to voluntarily suspend all flights, effective 1 June 2022.

SAA’s Interim Chairperson and Chief Executive, Prof John Lamola says, “Having emerged from business rescue ourselves, we empathize with Comair and understand the difficulties caused by COVID and high fuel prices.

“The team at SAA has been working hard to find solutions to help affected customers, and is in the process of adjusting our flying programme to adding more seats between Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. We are also looking at options to help customers on other routes serviced by SAA, adds Lamola.   

SAA will increase frequencies were possible and use existing capacity to meet customer demand. Kindly check our social media platforms and website for the latest information. 

SAA advises all customers that the airline’s normal pricing structure remains in place, and during demand periods lower fares are naturally taken up first. Customers can access updated flight schedules on
