ComairTimesLIVE reports that Comair has put contingency plans in place to mitigate any impact the SA Airways (SAA) strike on Friday may have on its flight schedules.  

“Comair will continue its operations notwithstanding the threatened industrial action at South African Airways Technical (Saat).  We will do everything possible to keep customers informed and to minimise the impact of any Saat strike action. Serving our customers remains our priority,” said Comair’s joint CEO Wrenelle Stander in a statement on Thursday.  Airline Mango on Thursday assured passengers “that we are not affected by the strike at SAA”.  SAA has cancelled nearly all of its domestic, regional and international flights scheduled for Friday and Saturday ahead of a union-led strike.  The airline indicated that all flights operated on partner airlines, including SA Express, Mango, SA Airlink and code-share partners, would not be affected.
