Unpacking the South African Airways Saga


Metro FM: The Drive With Mo Flava

Monday, 10 June 2019

Interview about financial and business challenges affecting South African Airways (SAA) amidst the abrupt resignation of its former Chief Executive Officer Mr Vuyani Jarana at the end of May. The interview reviews why SAA repeatedly needs to be bailed, whether the SAA turnaround strategy can change circumstances, and whether the South African government can afford the ZAR 21.7 billion bailout requested by SAA. The discussion also reviews whether South Africa needs a national carrier that is part-owned by the state and what needs to be done for SAA to recover its losses.
