SAA suspends all domestic flights

South African Airways (SAA) is joining the 21-day coronavirus lockdown. 


The public carrier says it will be suspending all domestic flights from Friday morning until the 16th of next month, in support of efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19. 

On Friday, SAA announced the suspension of all inter-continental and Africa regional flights. 

They remain grounded until the end of May. 

The airline says it will give support to passengers who want to change their travel plans and take their journeys before the national lockdown.

Passengers can reschedule flights after April 17, when SAA resumes operations.
