British Airways partner Comair resumes S Africa flights

JOHANNESBURG (AFP) – British Airways’ franchise partner in South Africa, Comair, said it would start flying again yesterday after being suspended by the local regulator for security reasons.

BA flights operated by Comair and its low-cost subsidiary would resume “following the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) reinstating Comair’s Air Operators’ Certificate”, the airline said in a statement on Wednesday night.

The South African regulator suspended the airline last Saturday, after an investigation uncovered issues posing “an immediate risk to safety and security”.
