SAA says it will re-accommodate passengers with alternative travel to be finalised "on/before October 17, 2017."
Towards the end of August SAA issued a statement saying the airline was set to introduce network changes on the domestic and regional segments of its route network.
SAA spokesperson Tlali Tlali said at the time, it related specifically to replacement of SAA’s own metal service on certain routes and not total withdrawal. The network changes are said to be part of the airline’s implementation of its newly developed five-year Corporate Plan that seeks to return the company to financial sustainability in the shortest time possible.
In June 2017, SAA aimed to address its current and long-term challenges, and bring more efficiency and financial stability, with the five-year business plan. ■
