20 February 2019 | Web Article Number: ME201913617
SA Express will resume its operations between Johannesburg and Mthatha in the Eastern Cape starting tomorrow, Thursday 21 February 2019.
The route was suspended on 25 January after the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) downgraded the Mthatha Airport following negative audit findings. The SACAA has subsequently upgraded the airport to level four and restored all the airport’s operating rights for passenger air services with immediate effect.
SA Express will operate a daily service between OR Tambo International and Mthatha Airports between Sunday and Friday with the intention of increasing frequency, in the coming weeks. The flights will depart Johannesburg (ORTIA) at 15:00 arriving at Mthatha Airport 16:40, with the return flights departing at 17:10, landing at OR Tambo International Airport (ORTIA) at 18:40
The airline will operate a 50-seater regional jet CRJ 200 on the route.
Passengers flying with SA Express on the route are eligible to earn Voyager miles.
