Operations to Lilongwe and Blantyre in Malawi by South African Airways will be suspended at the end of November, the carrier has announced, saying the move was a “risk management intervention”.
This follows an announcement last week that SAA would not accept payments for its services in Malawian Kwacha.
It came after Malawi’s central bank devalued the local currency to the US dollar.
SAA chief executive officer John Lamola, said the move in no way detracted from the airline’s commitment to serving the people of Malawi and promoting trade links between the two countries.
SAA added that it cannot commit to routes that are not financially sustainable.
The route will stop being serviced on Thursday next week.
