SOUTH AFRICAN AIRWAYS TO RESUME JOBURG-HK FLIGHTS DISTRUPTED BY TYPHOON

JOHANNESBURG– South African Airways (SAA) has resumed flights between Johannesburg and Hong Kong, following bad weather caused by Typhoon Mangkhut, the national flag carrier says.

Following the receipt of weather update and forecast from the authorities in Hong Kong, SAA is satisfied that the conditions are now within the airline’s operating limits to resume flights, it said here Monday.

It announced last week the suspension of flights on Saturday, Sunday and Monday flights because of Typhoon Mangkhut. The typhoon has now passed through Hong Kong, which clears the airspace for us to resume operations, SAA said, adding that it was deploying larger bigger aircraft to operate over the next two days.

As recovery operations continue in Hong Kong, we urge our customers to take note that ground services at the airport in Hong Kong as well as public transportation may still be affected, said SAA spokesperson Tlali Tlali.
