Aviation authority vows to stay on top of SA Express
The regulator has lifted the airlines temporary suspension.
The regulator grounded the airline on Saturday after it found SA Express did not adequately address the concerns it raised last month.
The CAA announced yesterday that the airline had submitted the relevant documents and could resume operations with immediate effect.
The aviation authority's spokesperson Simon Segwabe says the regulator will also intensify its oversight of the airlines' entire operation.
"We will change the status of the airline. It has never been grounded - not even a single aircraft before. We were the only airline that had never had a grounding so we have lost that status, we were very unhappy with it but we will address it going forward."
In a statement released yesterday, CEO of SA Express Inati Ntshanga said, "We assure the general public that this matter has been substantially addressed and will never occur again. I wish to reiterate that SA Express's safety record is of the highest possible standards, which is one of the reasons we are South Africa's leading regional airline."
