Nationwide Airlines has suspended all flights, both local and international, as of 29 April 2008. A statement issued by the airline read as follows: “On the 7th November 2007, Nationwide Airlines experienced an engine separation from a Boeing 737-200 on departure from Cape Town.
Our advice to all passengers booked on Nationwide Airlines is that they should make alternative travel arrangements. In the interim, we will have to wait for further information from Nationwide on the next steps.

We, however, remain committed to keeping you informed about the situation within the boundaries of our capacity as the airports management company. Furthermore, Nationwide Airlines have informed ACSA that they are currently in discussions to urgently resolve the way forward and will inform passengers what process they are going to follow in managing reimbursements for cancelled flights. We will capture your email address and as soon as we have further information from Nationwide, we will communicate with you.
