More than 300 South Africans returned to South Africa on Wednesday night on a SAA rental flight from Miami in the US state of Florida.
SAA, in collaboration with Workaway International, a company that arranges jobs for young people at golf clubs in America, has safely returned the group of South Africans.
The South African Airways (SAA) said on Wednesday it would be the first time in more than 20 years that it would fly to Miami again.
On Monday, SAA repatriated a group of nearly 100 South Africans from Accra in Ghana to South Africa. On the same day around 00:30, a total of 120 South Africans returned home after being stranded in Nigeria at the time of seclusion.
More than 200 South Africans were repatriated back to South Africa from London’s Heathrow airport last weekend.
More than 4,000 passengers have been flown back and forth to South Africa in SA repatriation flights in the past few weeks.
Dirco spokesperson Lunga Ngqengelele also said they were aware of all the South African citizens who were still stranded abroad. More than 3,000 South Africans have already contacted them and indicated that they were stranded abroad.
