Cape Times - - BUSINESS REPORT -

THE SOUTH African Civil Avi­a­tion Au­thor­ity (Sacaa) on Fri­day put a stop to CemAir’s op­er­a­tions, fol­low­ing the sus­pen­sion of the air­lines’ Part 121 and 135 Air Op­er­a­tor Cer­tifi­cates from 5pm with im­me­di­ate ef­fect. “The sus­pen­sion was ne­ces­si­tated by Sacaa’s con­cerns over the sys­temic fail­ure of the air­line’s main­te­nance con­trols. In a nut­shell, the most re­cent an­nual re­newal au­dit re­vealed CemAir’s in­abil­ity to prove the con­tin­ued air­wor­thi­ness of its fleet,” it said. Last month, the avi­a­tion reg­u­la­tor sus­pended CemAir’s air op­er­a­tor cer­tifi­cates. Sacaa said that it had nu­mer­ous in­ter­ac­tions with CemAir be­tween De­cem­ber 28, 2018, and Jan­uary 11.
