It is with great disappointment that KLM has undertaken the difficult decision to reduce its operations from South Africa to Amsterdam as per 13 December 2020.
On 3 December 2020, new regulations have been issued by the South African authorities, which changed the entry requirements for airline crew travelling into the country on international flights. Despite being given a 7-day grace period by the South African authorities in order to adjust our operations to these new requirements, it proves extremely difficult for KLM to maintain the same flight program for both Passenger and Cargo flights to and from South Africa.
KLM deeply regrets and apologises for the inconvenience these cancellations may cause. All passengers on the affected flights will be contacted and re-booked on alternative flights.
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines remains committed to work within the rules and regulations of South Africa whilst serving the country during the pandemic; contributing to the economic recovery in South Africa and ensuring that health and safety on board their aircraft is held to the highest standard.
