Dirco spokesperson Clayson Monyela says permission for 12 June has been granted for KLM Dutch airline.

The Internation Relations and Cooperation (Dirco) says no international flight has been denied adding rights in the country.

This comes after the Democratic Alliance (DA) wrote to the minister of Dirco seeking answers as to why international repatriation flights were denied landing rights in the country.

Speaking to Joanne Joseph, Dirco spokesperson Clayson Monyale says the part is working on outdated information.

Permission was granted for that flight to land in South Africa on 8 June, the operators of that flight, however, requested permission to land on 12 June and this has also been granted.
