SA Express to take to the skies again soon

JOHANNESBURG - Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises has welcomed the announcement that SA Express will resume flights as soon as next week.

SA Express had its operating license suspended by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) in May and also had its Aircraft Maintenance Organisation (AMO) approvals suspended as well as its Certificates of Airworthiness (CoA) on nine of its 21 planes.

SAA flew to the airline's rescue and honoured SA Express tickets, together with Mango and SA Airlink

Parliamentary Committee chairperson Lungi Mnganga-Gcabashe said the undertaking that SA Express would be taking to skies again soon was given on Tuesday by Minister Pravin Gordhan during a briefing to update the committee on addressing governance challenges at state-owned enterprises (SOEs).

“This is exciting news, specifically in light of the comment made by the Minister, that certain individuals have given their expertise, either personally or through the industry, to assist in ensuring that SA Express is given its flying licence again,” said Mnganga-Gcabashe.
