Cable theft at OR Tambo airport affects flights

Early on Sunday morning, a suspected theft of power cables at OR Tambo International Airport affected most domestic and international flights. All three power cables were damaged, according to Airports Company South Africa. The spokesperson said flights were expected to resume later Sunday.

The thefts affected the airport’s ability to refuel the larger planes but some of the smaller planes were able to connect for fuel. Unathi Batyashe, the spokeswoman for Acsa, said engineers were working to repair the cables but it would take some time to clear the backlog of flights once all repairs were finished. She said flights would likely resume around 4 pm.

The South African Police Service are investigating.
