i Jarana said during a briefing that South African Airways (SAA), which hasn't made a profit since 2011, would organise itself into domestic, regional and international business units.

Each unit will have its own management, rather than decisions being centralised, in a bid to make the airline more agile and increase accountability.

"We are evolving into an operating model of three business units," Jarana told the briefing.

"We want to build a new SAA, fit for the future, place the right people in the right job," he added.
