South African Airways (SAA), has collaborated with the Government of Canada through the High Commission of Canada in South Africa, to assist Canadians who were stranded in South Africa to return home, after the lockdown was implemented in response to the outbreak of the coronavirus, which resulted in travel restrictions.


Canadian citizens and permanent residents returned home from South Africa on a repatriation flight on Friday 10 April. The flight transported 313 Canadians from Johannesburg and Cape Town to London for onward connections to Canada. 


“We are pleased to assist and will continue to work with foreign governments through their respective embassies and high commissions in the repatriation of their nationals to re-join their families to share comfort, support and strength during these trying times,” said SAA acting General Manager for Operations, Tebogo Tsimane.
