BARSA – Airline preparations for reopening

Last Updated on

Letter received from BARSA

‘Dear Travel Partners,

Following the recent announcement that the South African Borders will be opened, airlines are preparing to open up.

However, there is a lot of planning in the background that needs to take place, just a few examples in summary –

– We await the permitted list of countries that South Africa will be permitted to enter South Africa and that South Africans will be able to fly to as this will inform decision making;
– Airlines have to ensure all protocols, operating permits etc. are in place and approved;
– Airlines are currently reviewing business models and strategies, ascertaining as to how much capacity and frequencies to inject in South Africa and even other parts of the world;
– This then results in other processes such as loading of inventory, structuring pricing, which is then filed in the respective systems.

Please free to communicate with the respective airline partners for specific information pertaining to that airline’s processes and decisions.’
