SAA CEO suggests business rescue will bring little benefit to airline

South African Airways (SAA) CEO Vuyani Jarana is of the opinion that placing the airline under business rescue would not lead to a radically different recovery plan for the deeply indebted and heavy loss-making national carrier. He was answering a question from FlightComm editor and aviation expert Guy Leitch at the twenty-seventh African Aviation Summit (Air Finance Africa) in Sandton, north of Johannesburg, on Wednesday. "Even during a time of business rescue, you still have to find the business," pointed out Jarana. "The government would still have to fund it."
