Flight Centre to assist stranded passengers


Flight Centre Travel Group has announced it will offer support and assistance to any passengers who have been affected by the recent South African Airways flight cancellations or by the grounding of CemAir. Following SAA’s announcement last week that the airline was scrapping one of its two daily return flights to London from 20 April, the airline also confirmed it is cancelling a number of flights on the Perth route between February and June this year.

Earlier this week, the South African Civil Aviation Authority also announced that CemAir had been grounded indefinitely.

The airline, based at O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, flies to Bloemfontein, Cape Town, George, Hoedspruit, Margate, Plettenberg Bay and Port Elizabeth.
