Exemptions for troublesome SAA vaccine flight were A-OK, says CAA
Aviation regulator insists it has not shown the national carrier preferential treatment
The Civil Aviation Authority has come out guns blazing regarding how it granted SAA authorisation to fly a controversial flight to Brussels to collect Covid-19 vaccines.
In a statement released on Thursday, the regulator said the approvals were “a common phenomenon and certainly not unique to SAA”.
“The approvals are being twisted to paint a picture that the SAA is receiving preferential treatment from the regulator.”..
