Third wave of COVID-19 forces Comair and kulula.com to temporarily suspend services

Comair is temporarily suspending all scheduled kulula.com and British Airways (operated by Comair) flights for three weeks. This follows the President’s announcement of a move to an adjusted Level 4 lockdown and the prohibition on all non-essential travel in and out of Gauteng.

Flights will be suspended from Monday, July 5, 2021 and Comair aims to recommence services from July 30 subject to regulations being eased and Covid-19 infection rates, particularly in Gauteng, being contained.

Comair CEO, Glenn Orsmond, apologized to customers affected by the suspension.“This was a difficult decision, but we believe under the circumstances is the right course of action for our loyal customers and employees.” Comair business rescue practitioner, Richard Ferguson, described the temporary suspension as a “bold, brave and responsible step in light of the prohibition on leisure travel to and from Gauteng, very little business travel and no connecting traffic from international carriers.”
