South African privately-owned regional carrier Airlink has announced the suspension of flights to Polokwane International Airport (PTG) in Polokwane in Limpopo. According to the airline, the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) has de-categorized the airport to CAT2, which is below the minimum level required for scheduled commercial air services. The current status of the airport therefore presents as an operational safety concern and it would be illegal to operate scheduled services at the airport. Airlink further announced that it is unable to ascertain at this stage whether Polokwane International Airport (PTG) will meet the minimum requirements for future services. The airline is currently the only airline offering flights to and from Polokwane.
