Comair obtains interdict to halt looming license suspension
FlySafair lodged a complaint with the ASLC questioning the level of Comair’s foreign ownership.
JOHANNESBURG - Comair says the Air Services Licensing Council has not provided clarity on whether it will suspend its air services license and, as a result, it's obtained an interdict against the council from potentially revoking its license.
The Kulula and British Airways operator met with the council in Pretoria earlier today.
The interdict means Comair cannot get its license revoked prior to a hearing set down for 17 May.
Comair's CEO Erik Venter says after the hearing it will take the council's decision on its shareholding review.
"Comair is confident that it is compliant with Air Services Licensing Act and today it obtained an interdict to prevent the council from taking any action against Comair until such time as the issue regarding Comair's foreign shareholding can be reviewed in a court of law."
