Cape Town – The CemAir airline can no longer operate as an airline or air operator or fly any of its 21 aircraft, the South African Civil Aviation Authority (Sacaa) announced last night.
The suspension of the airline’s air operator certificates (AOCs) became effective on Thursday when the airline was notified of Sacaa’s decision.


The aviation authority's audit team has also recommended to the director of Civil Aviation to revoke CemAir’s AOCs. The affected AOCs relate to the operator’s permits issued under Part 121 and Part 135 of the Civil Aviation Regulations.


CemAir had until on Thursday to provide Sacaa with valid reasons why the certificate should not be revoked.


The airline allegedly contravened the Civil Aviation Act, and five other Sacaa regulations, according to Sacaa inspectors following a permit renewal audit.

The ruling was made in the Johannesburg High Court on

It is impossible for small airlines to be profitable in SA. What with the tax payer subsidised SAA et al drowning out the market and intrenching a monopoly on profitable routes.
