SA Express to resume operations

SA Express (SAX) will resume its operations on Thursday 23 August 2018, following the temporary grounding at the end of May 2018.

This follows the recent reinstatement of both the airlines’s Air Operations Certificate (AOC) and Aircraft Maintenance Organisation (AMO) licenses by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA).

SAX has also received Certificates of Airworthiness for most of its 11 aircrafts from SACAA, with the remaining fleet expected to be given the green light soon.

In a press release SAX released, Interim CEO Siza Mzimela said, “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.”

SA Express passengers will be immediately able to book flights for travel.

The new schedule will roll out as follows:

  • Effective August, SAX will fly Johannesburg to Bloemfontein daily, one flight from Johannesburg to Lubumbashi, two flights from Johannesburg to Hoedspruit
  • Effective September, SAX will operate one weekly flight from Johannesburg to Walvis Bay
  • Effective October, SAX will operate five weekly flights from Johannesburg to Gaborone. 
  • Effective January, SAX will operate two weekly flights from Cape Town to Bloemfontein and one weekly flight from Cape Town to Walvis Bay
