Several local and international flights cancelled by SAA

JOHANNESBURG, January 21 (ANA) - Struggling national carrier South African Airways said on Tuesday it was in the process of consolidating its flights and had cancelled several on the domestic front as well as selected services between Johannesburg and Munich.

In a statement, SAA, which the government put under business rescue in December, said it was scrapping a number of flights from January 20 to January 24 between the Oliver Tambo International, Cape Town and King Shaka airports in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban respectively.

"SAA is working closely with its sister airline, Mango, to re-accommodate passengers on alternative services operated by both airlines to minimise disruption, and thereby ensure passengers reach their destination as quickly as possible," it said.

Spokesperson Tlali Tlali says only one international route has been affected namely the one between Johannesburg and Munich.

He says the reasons are mainly due to temporary surplus capacity caused by the introduction of the new Airbus A359 jets, as well as the low demand of the peak travel season.

SAA will continue updating the market if any changes occur.
