September 30, 2021: South African Airways (SAA) is signing a memorandum of co-operation with Kenya Airways with a longer-term view to co-starting a pan-African airline group that in time will enhance mutual growth potential by taking advantage of strengths of the two airlines’ busy hubs.
SAA’s interim CEO Thomas Kgokolo, said, “As well as being a strong local carrier, part of our broader growth strategy is to become a major player in regional travel and this joint memorandum with Kenya Airways, one of the continent’s strongest and most respected carriers, will do just that. Part of SAA’s core remit is to be a significant enabler of business and trade in Africa and it’s through a strategic understanding like this that real progress will be made in advancing South Africa and the continent’s growth.”
