Ethiopian Airlines is making slow progress with talks regarding cooperation with South African Airways (SAA), according to the former’s chief executive Tewolde Gebremariam.
The Addis Ababa-based carrier said in October last year that it was willing to provide “planes, pilots and maintenance services” to ailing SAA as part of a “joint venture” with the country’s government, but noted that it did not wish to take on legacy issues such as debts.
Speaking during a CAPA Live session today, Gebremariam says that talks with South Africa’s government “have been a challenge so far”.
“We are still discussing, but I would say it has not made the expected progress,” he states.
