New SAA ceo, Vuyani Jarana, is likely to cut staff at the carrier through a combination of layoffs and voluntary redundancies, according to a Business Day report.

"SAA cannot carry the same workforce, whether it is pilots, cabin crew or administration," he was quoted as saying.

The carrier is expected to cut between 1 000 and 1 500 people, according to the report.

According to reports, the airline employs some 190 employees per aircraft, compared to full service airlines in the USA, Europe and Asia which employ between 120 and 140 employees per aircraft. The large staff compliment at SAA has long been cited as one of the reason for the carrier’s financial losses.
