Criminals selling defective parts to SAA almost cause plane crash

Passengers on a recent Mango flight from Johannesburg to Cape Town were terrified when the aircraft suddenly nosedived, forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing in Johannesburg. A subsequent investigation into the incident has highlighted the extent of South African Airways’ problems.

  • A faulty part was fitted to the aircraft by SAA Technical
  • SAA admitted that it has been infiltrated by an international criminal syndicate
  • The syndicate has supplied the company with suspicious aircraft parts and looted “hundreds of millions of rands”
  • Defective parts cause incidents such as the nosedive of the Mango Boeing 737
  • Comair, which operates British Airways in South Africa, has ended its relationship with SAA Technical
  • Airlines have been grounded for such activities
  • The government has pumped almost R50-billion into the airline in the last decade
