South African Airways to begin talks on job cuts

Specialists appointed to try to save struggling South African Airways (SAA) on Monday said they plan to begin employee consultations on job cuts.

SAA entered a form of bankruptcy protection in December, with administrators Les Matuson and Siviwe Dongwana taking over management of the state-owned airline, which hasn’t made a profit since 2011.

“Our intention has always been to preserve as many jobs as possible through this process while still focusing on having a sustainable airline,” the practitioners Les Matuson and Siviwe Dongwana said in a joint statement as reported by CNBC.
