SSouth African Airways (SAA) is a key stakeholder in the Tourism Sector and contributes to the success of the Tourism industry in South Africa. The airline has today issued a statement that has outlined the steps it is taking to manage the re-scheduling of both domestic and international passengers on affected routes. SA Tourism calls on all stakeholders in the broader tourism value chain to support the efforts being made by the airline to manage the issue and to assist with efforts to inform passengers of the changes as they are communicated by the airline.
SAA provides direct airlift from key SA Tourism source markets around the world as well as domestic connectivity which facilitates access to South Africa's tourism offering and business tourism movement.
The potential loss of this direct airlift capacity and domestic connectivity could potentially have an adverse impact on our arrivals and geographical spread objectives and hopefully the lost capacity will be taken up fully by alternative airlines.
