The Local South African Airways (SAA) office still claims it is unaware of reports that their mother company is cutting its Malawi routes.

About two weeks ago South African media reported that SAA intends to cut the number of flights and routes in some parts of Africa and within South Africa.

The move is expected to allow SAA to scale back their fleet from 50 aircrafts to only 40, of which they own only nine.

The development has raised fears amongst the travelling public that frequent the SA-Malawi route, especially the business community.

The South African Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba is meanwhile expected to make an announcement on an equity injection during the next parliament’s medium term budget policy statement session next month.

Capital FM has been trying to get an update on the issue, but the country director for SAA in Malawi James Chikaonda insists there have not been any new developments that they are aware of on the matter.

SAA is the flag carrier of South Africa. Its headquarters are in Airways Park on the grounds of OR Tambo International Airport in Kempton Park, Ekurhuleni, Gauteng.
