Flights Affected By Level 3 Regulations

After South Africa entered into an adjusted level 3 lockdown, flights around the country have had to be adjusted as well. 

In President Cyril Ramaphosa's national address he announced that South Africa would be moving to an adjusted level 3 lockdown and as a result a new curfew was announced. 

The curfew restricts South Africans' movement between 6am and 9pm. 

Airlines have had to adjust their flight schedules accordingly so that their customers can comply with the new curfew. 

The revised regulations for domestic air travel is as follows:

  • Scheduled flights will be permitted to take off and land between 08:00 and 20:00.
  • Airports will be allowed to open earlier and later than this to process passengers.
  • Travel to COVID-19 hotspots is discouraged.
  • South Africa’s international borders will remain open.
  • Face masks must be worn on all public transport.
  • No permits are required for inter-provincial travel — as was previously the case under level 3.
  • Passengers who can present genuine boarding passes or passport stamps (relating to international travel) will not be penalised for movements during curfew hours.

Passengers have been left confused about what will happen to their flights. 

Passengers who are due to fly soon should take note of the flight schedules as airlines have cancelled or rescheduled flights in compliance with the new curfew. 

Affected passengers of FlySafair, Airlink, Mango and Kulula will be informed of any adjustments made to their flights via email or telephonically. All passengers are asked to take note of their departure times. 

Passengers and all persons should be warned that if they are found violating the curfew, without a valid reason, they can be arrested and prosecuted. They may be subjected to a 6 month prison term, a fine or both.
