Airports Company South Africaextreme dangerous event - overfilling of transit bus - flight sa express 1797

P Nov 26, 2018

During a recent flight on Flight 1797 to Lubumbashi on the 26th of November 2018 at 09H20, an incident occurred whilst passengers were entering the transit bus.

SAA ground staff overfilled the transit bus to such an extent that people were preventing the doors from closing in a safe manner. The bus then continued driving with open doors with people semi peeling out of door. When attempting to make the driver aware of this extremely dangerous and unacceptable situation, no emergency stop seem to be available in order to get the attention of the driver.

Redis Afrika utilise the services of SA Express for many years also on a frequent basis to fly executives and senior management to the DRC. This occurrence is being viewed as unacceptable and extremely unsafe, a standard that is not expected from a world class organisation.
