Taxi strike wreck air travelers’ plans
By TINTSWALO BALOYI
JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – SOUTH African Airways (SAA) has advised customers to allow for additional time as they travelled to OR Tambo International Airport in order to mitigate the impact of protest action on the major roads leading to the airport.
Metered taxi operators are protesting the presence of rival cab operators.
“We would like to plead with all our passengers who will be travelling from OR Tambo International to make every effort to arrive early at the airport today even if they will fly later in the day,” says SAA Spokesperson Tlali Tlali.
“This will minimise the impact on our operations and eliminate the inconvenience of travelling much later than they had planned.”
Tlai says the airline will provide assistance to passengers who missed their flights on Friday and will explore re-accommodating them on later flights.
The offer is subject to space availability and some conditions.
