On the 7th November 2007, Nationwide Airlines experienced an engine separation from a Boeing 737-200 on departure from Cape Town.

Subsequent to this a protracted grounding of our fleet was mandated by the South African Civil Aviation Authority.

In the months of December and January we resumed operations and attained a gradual recovery of the business however in the months of March and April we faced a 30% increase in fuel costs coupled with a decrease in passenger load factors.

Throughout this period we continued to work towards securing investment by a black empowerment consortium which unfortunately has not come to fruition.

Our cash-flow has become critical and as a result have decided to voluntarily cease all flight operations until further notice.

The company was placed under Provisional Winding-Up Order on the 29th April 2008 and in the hands of the Master of the High Court, Johannesburg. A provisional liquidator, Tshwane Trust Company has since been appointed, who will take charge of Nationwide Airlines. Contact details are :
