Mbalula inspects OR Tambo airport readiness for Level 3 travel

Domestic and international flights have been halted since the Covid-19 lockdown in South Africa from late March with flights only being allowed for repatriation.

Level 3 regulations now stipulate that limited domestic and international travel can only be allowed for business purposes, subject to restrictions on the number of flights per day and authorisation based on the reason for travel.

Domestic flight operations will be operating under strictly regulated conditions.

Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula arrived at OR Tambo International Airport on Wednesday morning to check the adherence and compliance measures put in place by the department to protect those who will be flying to their destinations.
