An outstanding balance was set to be paid on Monday after employees only received 50% of their November salaries last week.

The embattled airline earlier warned that it would not be able to pay salaries as scheduled due to its financial woes, but has now managed to settle their salary arrears on Friday evening.

SACCA president Zazi Nsibanyoni-Mugambi says although the airline has paid salaries, there are still lingering issues at the embattled state-owned airline.

“We’ve always known there is no cash flow at SAA, so its not necessarily a victory. The biggest victory will be when we get the task team up and running and we start fixing the day-to-day problems of SAA.

“There is a very long way to go and we are just hoping we get commitment from all the stakeholders.”

Trade union Solidarity has also served papers on SAA and the ministers of finance and public enterprises, asking a court to put the flag carrier in business rescue.
