South Africa: CemAir to resume operations after months of being grounded! [update]

update (29 October 2019): Effective 28 November 2019, CemAir will operate three weekly flights on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays between Johannesburg <> Plettenberg Bay and Cape Town <> Plettenberg Bay. The airline is planning to operate daily flights on the two routes between 04 December 2019 and mid-January 2020.

update (23 October 2019): CemAir has announced that starting 08 November 2019 it will be operating daily flights between OR Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg and Margate Airport (MGH) in Margate.

South African regional carrier CemAir has received two renewed Aircraft Operating Certificates (AOCs) from the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) on 17 October 2019 meaning that the airline can again operate commercial flights on its South African registered aircraft. In the coming week, CemAir will announce the first flights to be resumed on its domestic schedule. According to a press release, the airline is planning to provide flights to Margate and Plettenberg Bay the upcoming holiday season with the possible addition of other destinations. We'll keep you posted!

CemAir's operations were suspended by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) in December 2018 due to what SACAA called "concerns over the systematic failure of the airline's maintenance controls".
