The Johannesburg High Court didn’t accept the statement of the South African airline CemAir, which intended to challenge the decision suspending its work.
The decree, according to which the air carrier was supposed to cease its activities, entered into force on January 11, 2019. In fact, this decision meant, that CemAir could not fly because of the lack of operator certificates.
This became known from the resolution of the South African Civil Aviation Authority, which was adopted this month.
As noted in the SACAA, the company had to break down a working process due to the lack of controls on the airline maintenance, revealed during a recent audit.
In the process of flight license extending specialists discovered that CemAir cannot ensure the airworthiness of its fleet.
“The cost decision also paves the decision for the CAA audit team to demand the return of the certificate of the worthiness for the grounded aircraft, as well as to proceed with the intention to recommend to the director of civil aviation that CemAir is revoked,” stressed CAA spokesperson, Phindiwe Gwebu.
