We know that there are many airstrips not yet listed as open for MAF operation. Surveying more than 250 airstrips is quite a huge task that takes time.
The overall aim is to have all airstrips we operated into until recently surveyed by the end of the year. The gathered data then needs to be assessed for the involved risks and safety of our operations and/or guidelines/advice for more needed maintenance will have to be communicated with the community etc.
Our team will contact the MAF agent and advise the time frame. But this might be a few weeks down the road. Please bear with us.
We’ll update the list in a few weeks’ time again.
