Airports Company South Africa (Acsa) initially confirmed that Velvet Sky cancelled several of its flights on Wednesday. He said operations would continue as per usual.
This was because the airline had not paid South African Airways technical for services rendered.
Acsa spokesperson Solomon Makgale said, “Velvet Sky cancelled their flights at Cape Town International Airport. So far, they have not given us an update on flights that are supposed to take-off on Wednesday evening.”
One passenger said he was stranded in Cape Town.
“I walked to the [check-in] counter and they said there was a problem [with flights].”
Meanwhile, Velvet Sky's Chief Operations Officer Gary Webb said, “We do not have any cancelled flights at the moment. A Cape Town flight was delayed for three hours, and a Durban flight for two hours.”
He said operations would continue as per usual.(Edited by Zethu Zulu)
