JOHANNESBURG – SOUTH African Airways (SAA) has cancelled flights to and from Mauritius due to the severe tropical storm, Fakir.

Four flights scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday have been affected.

SAA would nonetheless operate a bigger aircraft, the A340-600, on the route on Wednesday to ensure customers reach their destinations.

Tlali Tlali SAA spokesperson, apologised for the cancellation.

“The decision to cancel was taken in the interest of safety, after it was established from the Mauritius Meteorology Services that the aerodrome weather forecast created by the severe tropical storm Fakir would affect SAA’s operations today (Tuesday).”

Fakir is accompanied by maximum sustained winds near 74 kilometres per hour.
