Comair calls on Kuula and British Airways flights

Comair airline has suspended all its flights to South Africa in search of additional funding.

The airline that owns and operates the Kulula.com flights also acts as British Airways’ national franchise partner in the country.

“Comair regrets to inform that its flights have been voluntarily suspended since 1 June pending obtaining funding to resume operations. If your flight has been canceled, please do not go to the airport unless you have alternative arrangements. Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience. “

“Once received, the airline will be able to recommend operations, but sadly in these circumstances, practitioners (administrators) have no choice but to voluntarily suspend all scheduled flights until funding is confirmed,” he said.

Comair went into bailout operations in May 2020 after the Covid-19 pandemic decimated the airline and travel industry. It resumed flying in December 2020, while still in rescue activity.

He was subsequently forced to start and stop flights multiple times in the past 24 months due to continuing blocking restrictions. More recently, in March 2022, Comair was forced to stop all flights after the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) raised safety concerns.
