SA Express (SAX) has resumed flights from Cape Town (CPT) to Bloemfontein (BFN) and Walvis Bay (WVB).

The airline’s interim CEO, Siza Mzimela, said the move showed the significant progress SAX had made in implementing its new business strategies. She noted that returning to key markets like Cape Town was a priority for the airline. “But instead of trying to be everything to everyone, we have adopted a new pragmatic model in the way we select our routes, so that, in the end, we only relaunch those routes that can be sustained.”

The routes will be serviced by a 50-seat Bombardier CRJ200. The flight schedules for the relaunched routes are as follows:
