“I received a complaint that some of the airlines are not observing regulations on board and have totally lapsed in relation to the regulations.

“There is no enforcement of masks and there is no sanitising and all that and so we want to deal with that because we can’t allow airlines to break the measures that have been set by the government,” he said.

Mbalula says the department is looking at opening international travel.
