SA Express to restart operations on Thursday.

SA Express has confirmed it will be resuming its flying operations from this Thursday, 23rd August 2018, following recent news that both the airline’s Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) and Aircraft Maintenance Organisation (AMO) licenses by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) had been reinstated.

The South African regional airline has also already received Certificates of Airworthiness for most of its 11 aircraft from SACAA, with the remaining fleet expected to be given the green light in the next few days.

"We are delighted that we have now satisfied the concerns that the regulator had leading to our temporary grounding at the end of May this year. This has paved the way for us to prudently and incrementally reintroduce our flights as from August 23, 2018." Said Interim CEO, Siza Mzimela said, adding "We would like to thank all our valued customers and loyal staff for bearing with us while we were addressing the regulator’s operational requirements."

The temporary grounding of the airline gave the management the time to fully interrogate all aspects of its operation as well as reassess its customer value proposition.  "It is all systems go now and we are coming back stronger, more focused and energised. In this regard, we are determined going forward to set new industry standards for safety, product quality and customer service." Siza Mzimela confirms.

SA Express advises that services are now on sale via its website  www.flyexpress.aero.
