South African grounds some aircraft due to maintenance issues


South African Airways (SAA) advises customers that it may operate an amended flight schedule following a decision to recall some of its aircraft to undertake compliance verification in line with the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) requirements. The decision to recall the aircraft follows an oversight inspection conducted by SACAA at SAA’s maintenance subsidiary, South African Airways Technical (SAAT). Some of the flights will operate later than usual and SAA has implemented its contingency plans to ensure business continuity. Whilst there were only four (4) domestic flight cancellations, SAA took steps to combine flights and deploy bigger aircraft to accommodate affected passengers. This has significantly reduced the impact of the inconvenience on the customers. SAA understands that the inspection conducted by SACAA was in accordance with its regulations and a necessary exercise to ensure compliance and safety. SAA apologises for the inconvenience caused to its customers and passengers. SAA will continue to update the situation on an ongoing basis.
