I want to keep you informed of the situation regarding South African Airlines.
Our travel agent has brought to our attention some industry information indicating the South African Airways business is struggling at this time. Some media reports also confirm this issue. We have been in touch with our travel agent and travel insurance people to explore our options if we are unable to fly with SAA in April 2020. Our airline deposits appear to be covered by our insurance policy and we are investigating other travel options if needed.
At this stage we are waiting on any further information from SAA and monitoring the situation. Our tour plans, fund-raising and preparations need to continue as planned.
We hope and pray this issue does not affect our tour of South Africa in April. We will keep you informed of any relevant developments.
If you have any questions I can help you with please be in touch via email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Merry Christmas and blessings to all.
Dr Mark Fielding
