While Mango and SAAT are SAA subsidiaries, solely SAA is present in enterprise rescue.

After authorities missed the enterprise rescue practitioners’ deadline to supply SAA with the R10.5 billion wanted to maintain the airline from being liquidated, the division of public enterprises is at the moment negotiating with banks and collectors to supply the cash, in what could also be bridging finance.

The R10.5 billion might be used, partially, to settle the voluntary severance packaged of greater than 3,000 of SAA’s 5,000 staff. The cash might presumably even be used to settle the SAAT unpaid payments.

Over the previous decade, SAA acquired about R30 billion in authorities bailouts, and it final made a revenue in 2011.

SAAT has seen its personal share of controversy over the previous yr. Last yr, native airways had been pressured to floor a few of their plane for compliance checks after irregularities had been found throughout an inspection at SAAT.

This got here after reviews that SAAT used “faux components” when servicing plane, and {that a} crime syndicate had infiltrated the airline’s technical group. SAAT denied this, however finance minister Tito Mboweni later confirmed widespread theft at SAAT, together with that “a complete engine” was stolen.

FlySafair, which owns its personal upkeep arm, has capitalised on SAAT’s issues – and continued to fly as different planes had been grounded.
