SAA to resume flights to Nairobi

Aug 08 2013 17:12
Johannesburg - South African Airways (SAA) plans to resume its daily flights between Johannesburg and Nairobi as of Friday, August 9 2013.

The decision to resume flights was taken after the Kenyan authorities had indicated that Jomo Kenyatta International Airport will reopen on Thursday evening.

The airport was shut down after fire broke out at the airport in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

This led to SAA canceling its flights (SA184 and SA185) on Wednesday and Thursday.

"The reopening of the airport will enable SAA to activate its recovery plan in order to ensure swift transportation of its passengers from Johannesburg to Nairobi and vice versa," SAA said in a statement.

"The plan entails deploying extra capacity in the form of wide body aircraft as well as an additional flight."
