The South African Civil Aviation Authority today, 12 March 2022, released a media statement that states they are suspending the Air Operator Certificate of Comair Limited along with its subsidiary

SACCA said, “This decision was reached following an investigation into the recent spate of safety incidents at the operator. This is a precautionary suspension for 24 hours, within which the operator must demonstrate to the regulator that the risk and safety management systems are effective in managing potential hazards.”

During the past few months, Comair operations have experienced occurrences ranging from engine failures, engine malfunctions to landing gear malfunctions and this led SACAA to visit the Operator to investigate and determine if it is following applicable Civil Aviation Regulations (CARs). The inspections by SACAA also aimed at reviewing Comair’s quality control management system (QC) and safety management systems (SMS) to establish compliance related to reporting, analysis, and follow-up on occurrences, and corrective action plans.

SACCA stated, “Failure of the operator to produce satisfactory evidence to the regulator led to the decision to impose a precautionary suspension of the operations in order to give the operator an opportunity to demonstrate that their systems are able to prevent and avert safety hazards.”

SACAA has given Comair a deadline of Sunday 13 March 2022, to meet the requirements of the regulator, and failing to do so will see the operator be suspended indefinitely, depending on the satisfactory closing of the findings.
