SOUTH AFRICAN AIRWAYS HAS CANCELLED A NUMBER OF THEIR DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS
Flight Centre Travel Group notes South African Airways’ cancellation of certain domestic and international flights on 21 January 2020. Our customers remain our top priority and we have been working through the night to advise, assist and re-accommodate any affected passengers where possible.
The Group is currently monitoring the situation while awaiting official confirmation from SAA with regards to its flight situation. We urge affected customers to contact their Flight Centre Travel Expert for details and assistance. In November 2019, Flight Centre Travel Group took the decision to no longer sell South African Airways.
This followed confirmation by our preferred Travel Insurance Provider and underwriters that they were no longer willing to cover SAA under their Travel Supplier Insolvency benefit due to doubts concerning the long-term viability of the airline. We will continue to advise our customers on the situation as more details arise.
We are in the process of contacting our customers to advise and assist. Should you be affected and wish to discuss your options, please contact your Travel Manager.
