Stop 'bailing out SAA'

Government funding of South African Airways (SAA) should stop, Kulula said yesterday.

Government funding of South African Airways (SAA) should stop, Kulula said yesterday.

"Kulula has once again called on government to call it a day and keep its promise ... that South African taxpayers will stop filling the begging bowl for ailing state-owned businesses," said Kulula.

The airline said many other companies like Nationwide had failed because they could not compete with state-funded SAA. "State re-nationalisation of the industry will continue to be destructive to free and fair competition." - Sapa
