South African Airways to resume flights after Mauritius lifts travel ban

South African Airways (SAA) has announced that it will be resuming flights to Mauritius after the island lifted its travel ban on the country in January.

Mauritius had banned travel from Southern African countries in November last year following the emergence of the COVID-19 Omicron variant.

SAA interim CEO, Thomas Kgokolo, said the airline welcomed the decision to re-open border gates and flights will resume on 1 March.

“We are delighted to welcome our customers back on the Mauritius route following the decision by the Mauritian government to rescind its decision to stop operations, particularly during the height of the summer season, due to COVID-19 concerns.

He said the airline is looking forward to a “successful operation start” to the year following a tumultuous past two years, where the airline was grounded and put under business rescue.

“With a constant eye on finances, we are evaluating passenger load on our routes, with a view of adding and subtracting if necessary.

“In addition, one of our principle focus points in the coming months will be strengthening existing relationships with our alliance partners, with a view of offering passengers more international flight opportunities, as well as looking for more cargo prospects,” Kgokolo said.
