There is a ray of hope for one of the beleaguered African carriers. South African Airways is preparing to emerge from its self-inflicted collapse. The crisis-ridden airline is said to be preparing for a return to service by first operating domestically before international operations, connecting its network to its hub in Johannesburg according to sources close to the airline.

The carrier has been issued a new Airline Operator Certificate (AOC) by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA). The source who spoke on AirInsight on a strict condition of anonymity disclosed that the carrier is scheduled to begin domestic routes between September and October 2021. According to the source, “It is an exciting time for SAA following months of uncertainty about the future of one of Africa’s strongest carriers. Activities are in top speed to ensure that the carrier is back to reckoning. It has been a trying period for SAA. The official announcement for flight resumption would be made as time goes on”.
