Posted 22 March 2018 · Add Comment

South African Airways (SAA) advises all its customers of changes to its US flights due to adverse weather conditions.

“We have decided to cancel today’s flight from Johannesburg to New York and tomorrow’s flight returning from New York to Johannesburg due to adverse weather conditions such as snow and freezing rain aggravated by gusting winds.

The weather conditions make it unsafe to operate flights as conditions are outside our operating limits,” said SAA spokesperson, Tlali Tlali.

The following South African Airways (SAA) flights are cancelled:

Wednesday, 21 March 2018

SA 203 from Johannesburg (JNB) to New York (JFK)

Thursday, 22 March 2018

SA 204 from New York (JFK) to Johannesburg (JNB)

Services to and from Washington, Dulles (IAD) are currently unaffected.

Today’s flight (SA209) from Johannesburg via Accra to Washington and tomorrow’s flight (SA210) from Washington via Accra to Johannesburg will operate on a bigger aircraft, the Airbus A340-600.

“South African Airways regrets any inconvenience caused to our customers as a result of cancellation of flights. We have the best interests of our passengers at heart and trust that our discerning customers will appreciate that this decision was based on safety as the main consideration,” said Tlali.
