South Africa air travel to become cheaper with reduced charges

Published on : Friday, January 6, 2017

south-africa-airAirports Company South Africa (ACSA), which operates South Africa’s airports, confirmed that it will be lowering aircraft landing fees, aircraft parking fees and passenger service charges by 35 per cent from April, thus making air travel much cheaper.


ACSA, which reported a profit of nearly 2.0 billion Rand (about 146 million US dollars) for 2016, has a number of development initiatives in the pipeline, including the re-alignment of runways and terminal improvements at Cape Town International Airport.


Its chief executive officer, Bongani Maseko, said in a statement in Johanessburg Thursday (Jan 6) that all role players in the industry could now have regulatory certainty.


Meanwhile, a South African Airways (SAA) passenger plane which experienced technical problems over New York on Wednesday night was set to return to Johannesburg late Thursday.


The aircraft had to dump fuel over the Atlantic Ocean before returning to New York’s JF Kennedy International Airport. SAA said in a statement that the plane experienced problems with its wing flaps.
