The airline said the Emergency Committee of WHO on the Ebola outbreak held a meeting in Geneva from 6 – 7 August. The meeting, said SAA spokesperson Tlali Tlali, concluded that there “should be no general ban on international travel or trade” to that region.

A total of 1 848 cases and 1 013 deaths have been confirmed since the outbreak was reported in West Africa in March.

“Having noted the announcement by WHO, SAA has stepped up measures aimed at protecting its passengers, crew and ground staff,” said Tlali on Wednesday.

SAA flies to five destinations in West Africa, namely Abidjan (Ivory Coast); Accra (Ghana); Cotonou (Benin); Dakar (Senegal) and Lagos (Nigeria).

“There is no travel ban to any of these destinations as a result of the outbreak of the virus in that region. The airline remains committed to ensuring the enforcement of international health protocols associated with air transport,” said Tlali.
