Posted 29 January 2019 · Add Comment

South Africa’s domestic airline CemAir has lost its application bid with the Johannesburg High Court to overturn a decision grounding its operations.

 

This follows another South African Civil Aviation Authority resolution on January 11 to ground the carriers' flights, citing safety concerns.

CAA spokesperson, Phindiwe Gwebu said: “The cost decision also paves the decision for the CAA audit team to demand the return of the certificate of the worthiness for the grounded aircraft, as well as to proceed with the intention to recommend to the director of civil aviation that CemAir is revoked.”
