SAA resumes flights from Johannesburg to Hong Kong

Posted 18 September 2018 · Add Comment

South African Airways (SAA) has resumed flights between Johannesburg and Hong Kong following Typhoon Mangkhut.

 

Tlali Tlali, SAA Spokesperson, said: “Following the receipt of weather update and forecast from the authorities in Hong Kong, SAA is satisfied that the conditions are now within the airline’s operating limits to resume flights.  This follows the suspension of flights between the two destinations in the last three days. The typhoon has now passed through Hong Kong, which clears the airspace for us to resume operations.

“To ensure that we assist all customers affected by the cancellation of our flights, we have deployed a bigger aircraft to operate over the next two days. As recovery operations continue in Hong Kong, we urge our customers to take note that ground services at the airport in Hong Kong as well as public transportation may still be affected."
