PMB airport compliance issues raised

MSUNDUZI Municipality may “forfeit” its license to operate the Pietermaritzburg Airport, if it fails urgently to address issues of non-compliance, particularly fixing the damaged runway.

South African Airlink spokesperson Karin Murray said the minor damage on runway 16 posed no threat to the safe operation of Airlink flights.
