South African state-owned regional airline SA Express just announced that it will resume operations on 23 August 2018. The airline was grounded by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA), the national aviation authority of South Africa, in May 2018. In June 2018 SACAA reinstated SA Express' Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and Aircraft Maintenance Organisation (AMO) approval as well as Certificates of Airworthiness (CoA) for two of the carrier's aircrafts. Subsequently in July 2018, the airline announced that it was readying itself for take-off. In the meantime most of SA Express' eleven aircrafts received their CoA back; the remaining fleet is expected to be cleared for take-off soon.
