Cape Town - The DA said on Monday it would request the Competition Commission to launch a full-scale investigation into alleged collusion between South African Airways (SAA) and its low-cost subsidiary Mango Airlines.

This was after SAA seemingly inadvertently revealed in a statement issued on Saturday that it has enabled Mango to offer discounted flights through subleasing aircraft at discounted rates.

SAA issued the statement in reaction to the resignation of Mango CEO Nico Bezuidenhout, who has been appointed as new CEO of Africa-focused, low-cost airline fastjet as from August 1 2016. Bezuidenhout has been CEO since Mango commenced operations ten years ago. He has also acted as SAA CEO twice.
