"Critical discussions with Mango and SAAT are still continuing today and we are hopeful of a resolution. Updates will be made available as soon as possible," said Mango spokesperson Benediction Zubane.

 

"Mango continues to operate as per schedule under these challenging times and all customers are urged to check Mango's website for any changes to their flight status. We remain resolute to flying all passengers to their respective destinations as planned, and especially over the weekend."

 

A statement released by SAAT said: "SAA Technical has sent communication to SAA about the suspension. Because SAA hasn't been able to meet its obligations regarding payments. SAA Technical is pursuing its commercial interests and needs to ensure its customers are able to pay for services rendered.”
