helsinki_plane_2After grounding regional airline SA Express over safety issues, on Saturday, the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) has given regional airline SA Express the green light to resume flying.

Explaining why the CAA was allowing SA Express’s fleet of 26 aircraft to resume flying Simon Segwabe, the executive in charge of Aviation Safety Operations, said, “From yesterday’s (Saturday’s) suspension, we had had subsequent engagements with SA Express.


“This afternoon (Sunday) the submission they had made to us, the South African CAA found it acceptable. We had therefore undertaken to uplift the suspension. The upliftment of the suspension implies that the airline can now commence with operations.”

The CAA said in Pretoria Sunday that it had lifted the suspension of Express’s Air Operator Certificate (AOC). This means that the State-owned carrier may, with immediate effect, resume operating its fleet of 26 aircraft.

The CAA suspended SA Express’s AOC privileges on Saturday, saying its recent inspections and audits had revealed deficiencies relating to the operator’s safety monitoring systems.
