The South African Airways (SAA) on Friday canceled its flights to and from Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe due what it dubs ‘change of category status and resultant conditions at the airport’.

While media reports in Malawi cite security concerns at the airport as the main cause, there has not been any instances about security lapses at the facility lately let alone the city.

South African Airways cancels Malawi flights.

But SAA maintains the cancellation is due to the change of category status and resultant conditions at the airport “which are currently not compatible with prescribed operational requirements for SAA to continue its scheduled services to and from Lilongwe”.

 

“We operate within a highly regulated industry and must always ensure compliance with the prescribed requirements set out by the regulating authorities,” says Tlali Tlali, SAA Spokesperson.

SAA confirmed customers would be able to re-book there flights under certain terms and conditions –  Tickets must be re-issued on/before 22 April 2016, travel must commence on/before 22 April 2016. visit SAA website or contact:
