SA Express acting CEO Matsietsi Mokholo has commented that the airline has experienced major staff shortages recently, which may have contributed to its maintenance issues and ultimately the grounding of its aircraft last week by the Civil Aviation Authority due to serious safety concerns for thirty days. “We lost a number of technicians in critical areas. We lost engineers, we even lost pilots,” he said. Mokholo also confirmed to local media that SA Express technicians are being transferred to South African Airways (SAA) for supervision and training until they renew their permits.
