Durban – South African Airways (SAA) Chairperson Dudu Myeni told News24 in an exclusive interview on Tuesday that the national carrier had every intention of growing the OR Tambo hub, but that it had to compete with increasingly competitive foreign airlines.

This, she said, required a comprehensive national strategy involving all stakeholders.

Myeni was responding to Acsa CEO Bongani Maseko who told the Sunday Times at the weekend that if the problems at SAA were not fixed urgently, OR Tambo International Airport would lose its status as a major hub connecting Africa to the world.
