Velvet Sky ready to fly
Johannesburg - Velvet Sky was due to resume flight operations on Friday afternoon, after flight delays in the morning, the low-cost airline said.
A Velvet airlines flight has started boarding at OR Tambo airport, sources confirmed to News24.
"We changed a major service provider and there was a lot of paperwork that took longer than we expected.... We are legal now, all the processes were completed," spokesperson Gary Webb said.
Velvet Sky flights were delayed by up to five hours on Friday morning - two hours longer than originally expected.
On Thursday, Webb said the company was in a dispute with a service provider, and in the process of changing service providers, but this was not concluded in time to operate.
All flights were cancelled on Thursday.

Velvet Sky said the delays, which started on Wednesday, were caused by circumstances beyond its control.
