update (01 August 2018): SA Express plans to resume its flight schedules in the next few weeks!
The South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA), the national aviation authority of South Africa, has cleared South African regional carrier SA Express for take-off by reinstating the airline's Air Operator Certificate (AOC). SA Express' Aircraft Maintenance Organisation (AMO) approval was already reinstated about a month ago. In addition, two of the airline's aircrafts got Certificates of Airworthiness (CoA), so that SA Express is now permitted to operate scheduled commercial flights again with these two aircrafts in South Africa.
Back in May 2018, the SACAA suspended the state-owned SA Express' Air Operator's Certificate (AOC), the Aircraft Maintenance Organisation (AMO) approvals as well as the Certificates of Airworthiness (CoA) of nine of the airline's 21 aircraft.
