South African Airways spokesman Tlali Tlali has assured that it will not stop flying ti.Malawi as one of the airlines destinations, after reports  suggested the airline will dump Blantyre and Lilongwe routes.

South African Airways  won’t stop Malawi flights

Tlailambasted a Media24 publication for being “unprofessional” and lacking “decency and courtesy” following a report  that said that SAA would reduce the number of flights in an attempt to become more profitable.

He said the publication did not  consult SAA about that story.

“If there are any changes which affect our clients, we will communicate those changes to the public.

“We didn’t put that information in the public domain. This information was acquired through their own sources, but they didn’t have the courtesy to confirm any of the information with us. They [Media24] have put it out to the public and they will have to deal with the consequences thereof.”

Asked whether the information was accurate, he said: “I will not be discussing that now. You will have to ask Media24 that question. The manner in which the story was handled by the publication lacked professionalism, decency and courtesy as they published the article without any consultation with us.”

SAA’s financial woes have made headlines for some time.

It was recently reported that a leaked document revealed Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba’s plan to sell 40% of government shares in Telkom – valued at R14-billion – for another R10-billion SAA bailout.

Why is everyone climbing into the engine in the photo?


Hahaha.. aiaiaia

Jesus is LORD

South Africa is going downhill fast. I especially note that since Gigaba declared war on God by banning a Pastor from visiting SA for 1 day to preach the Gospel, the decline has accelerated. Tornado and flash floods last year, major companies pulling out and heavy food price hikes this year so far. Don’t mess with God!!!


Such stupid beliefs are what make Malawi poor

Jesus is LORD

A righteous remnant is the difference between a country surviving and a country getting destroyed. Btw who says I’m from Malawi?

Blessed Banda

By failing to categorically state that the report inaccurate it means it is true that their Board or Management has discussed this issue and they are planning to implement it in the near future.

bonginkosi ntuli

no smoke without fire!!!!!
