SAA to provide repatriation charter flights to various countries
South Africa Airways (SAA) has agreed to provide repatriation charter flights to various international destinations.
The airline agreed to assist people to travel home provided they haven't tested positive for COVID-19.
The first of these flights is expected to leave the country on Friday, ferrying German citizens.
Clement Manyathela speaks to SAA spokesperson Tlali Tlali about the flights.
We are starting the repatriation on behalf of the Germany government after their embassy got in touch with our government.Tlali Tlali, Spokesperson - SAA
In this instance, the assumptions are that travellers that may be stranded or nationals that want to return back to their home countries would have a return ticket.Tlali Tlali, Spokesperson - SAA
If they don't have a return ticket they must contact their respective embassies and the embassy will initiate a process that will facilitate a provision by the airline for the transfer to their final destination.Tlali Tlali, Spokesperson - SAA
