South African Airways (SAA) is the flag carrier of South Africa.[4] Founded in 1934, the airline is headquartered in Airways Park at O. R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and operates a hub-and-spoke network, serving ten destinations in Africa.[5] The carrier joined Star Alliance in April 2006, making it the first African carrier to sign with one of the three major airline alliances.[6]

The airline entered voluntary business rescue in December 2019 as a result of many years of financial losses,[7] and suspended all operations the following year.[8] In June 2021, the government announced that in an attempt to revive the airline, it had entered into a partnership with the Takatso Consortium, which would hold a 51% controlling stake.[9] The South African Civil Aviation Authority confirmed on 4 August 2021 that SAA's air operator's certificate had been reissued with an approved fleet of eight aircraft.[5]

The airline restarted operations on 23 September 2021,[10] despite not having concluded the investment agreement with the proposed private partners.[11] Nonetheless, SAA was recognised as the second best airline in Africa by Skytrax in 2021,[12] despite not having flown a single scheduled flight for 18 months.
