SAA suspends flights to Hong Kong

Posted 22 November 2019 · Add Comment

South African Airways (SAA) is suspending all services between Johannesburg and Hong Kong from Saturday, 23 November until and including, 14 December 2019.

This decision has been taken to curb significant financial losses incurred on the route, exacerbated recently by the ongoing political tensions in Hong Kong,

“The decision to suspend services to Hong Kong is regrettable, but necessitated by the current downturn in business due to the developing challenges in the region. By suspending these flights, we can concentrate on resuming more regional services at the earliest opportunity and make better use of all our resources,” said Philip Saunders, SAA’s chief commercial officer.
