If you did the right thing and booked your flight on British Airways or Kulula for this week well in advance, like you’re supposed to, you could find your travel plans delayed.
The South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) issued Comair with a notice on Monday grounding some of its planes.
The notice was issued after an audit that reported “irregular findings” during a recent audit of Comair’s maintenance and technical service provider, South African Airways Technical (SAAT).
Business Insider SA with what we can expect moving forward:
The company could not immediately provide a copy of the notice, and the SACAA could not immediately be reached for comment.
Comair did not say how many of its planes had been grounded or exactly what the impact on Kulula and British Airways flights would be, but said it had contingency plans in place.
It advised customers to check the status of flights on the websites for Kulula and British Airways.
“We are working closely with SAAT to rectify the findings and getting our flights back on schedule as soon as possible,” the company said, stressing that it is committed to safety.
Yes, safety is key when you’re packing a giant metal tube full of people and sending it off into the sky.
Comair hasn’t been happy with SAAT for a while, saying that the company has an “atrocious on-time record”. They’ve been trying to move operations away from SAAT.
Looks like it might be time to make that move permanent.
