SA Express passengers can still use tickets


Kempton Park, Gauteng, 02 May 2016 It's been another confusing and frustrating day for SA Express customers. Many showed up at airports around the country, not certain of their travel arrangements.

JOHANNESBURG – Passengers with SA Express tickets will still be able to use them despite the suspension of the airline&39;s operating licence.

South African Airways (SAA), Mango Airlines and SA Airlink will accommodate those passengers.

The three partner airlines said this is to mitigate the impact after the Civil Aviation Authority on Thursday grounded the embattled SA Express. 

An audit of SA Express uncovered severe cases of non-compliance that posed serious safety risks.

SAA will rebook, reroute or refund passengers whose travel plans have changed.

The national carrier will also compensate passengers where applicable.

Passengers travelling between 6am and 9am on Friday are advised to report to SA Express counters for more information.
