Domestic airline Mango has continued with "business as usual" after two unions at South African Airways (SAA) embarked on a planned strike on Friday.
"I think for us, it is business as usual. Fridays are a very busy day for us normally, so it has made a busy day just busier," Mango CEO Nico Bezuidenhout told News24 at OR Tambo International Airport on Friday.
SAA on Thursday evening asked passengers who had been booked to travel on all its domestic, regional and international flights on Friday and Saturday, not to turn up at airports, but to instead follow the airline's travel policy to exercise their rights following the cancellation of flights because of industrial action, Fin24 reported.
Mango extended its resources to assist SAA with any possible transfers during the industrial action.
"We have added a couple of extra flights. I believe that most of the flights will be absorbed and most of the seats will be absorbed by passengers, so for us largely it is business as normal," he explained.
