Comair to resume operations from December

Posted by Anita Froneman on 25 November 2020

Comair will resume operations of their regional British Airways flights on December 9.

A spokesperson for the airline told Travel News that the Labour Court had dismissed Numsa’s application to get an interdict to declare that Comair employees were not bound by the terms of the collective agreement signed during September.

Had it succeeded, it could have resulted in a liquidation and a loss of 2,200 jobs at the airline.

‘With reservations for the British Airways’ flights open we’re now able to offer bookings on a considerably expanded schedule. As well as giving customers the choice of booking on either of our airline brands and a greater range of competitive fares, they now also have the option of booking in business class,’ says Glenn Orsmond, representing the Comair Rescue Consortium.

The reintroduction of British Airways’ flights will also see the reopening of the popular, award-winning SLOW lounges. Initially the domestic lounges at King Shaka International, Cape Town International and OR Tambo International will open. The other lounges will reopen as the flight schedule expands.

Discovery Vitality has also resumed its agreement with, as has FNB’s eBucks rewards programme arrangement with Comair.

Orsmond says that Comair will initially operate a fleet of fifteen aircraft across both airline brands gradually increasing as the remainder of the fleet returns to service over the next few months.
