While the South African Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has suspended the Umtata Airport (UTT) licence for non-compliance with CAA standards, aeroplanes are still landing there, it was reported. The airport's licence was suspended in July due to inadequate fire fighting facilities, poor management, vandalism of equipment and inadequate fencing to keep livestock from nearby villages off the runway.
