South African Airways cancels nearly all its domestic, regional and international flights for November 15 and 16. IOLTravel

South African Airways has cancelled nearly all its domestic, regional and international flights scheduled for Friday, November 15, and Saturday, November 16, 2019, the airline revealed in a statement.

SAA Spokesperson Tlali Tlali said the airline’s main objective is to minimise the impact of disruptions on its customers. The cancellations follow an announcement by the South African Cabin Crew Association and the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa that their members will embark on industrial action this Friday.

“We are putting our customers first and regret the inevitable inconvenience that these cancellations may cause our customers. However, by acting proactively, SAA can certainly help customers find alternatives,” said Tlali. Tlali said unless alternative arrangements were in place, customers were requested not to go to their departure airports during the disruption as SAA will be unable to provide any assistance.
