Former SAA Technical chair Yakhe Kwinana has failed to explain why the SAA Board rejected Air France's bid when it was in the same position as the other two bidders. This after evidence leader Kate Hofmeyr pointed out that both Air France, AAR and JM Aviation were not BEE compliant.
Kwinana testified earlier in the week on how she went on luxurious trip to AAR Aviation's Chicago headquarters during the bidding process.
The SAA Technical Board under Kwinana rejected management recommendations to appoint Air France and awarded the R1.2 billion contract to AAR and JM.
Kwinana told the Commission that she's not certain about Air France's commitment to BEE and supplier development.
Hofmeyr earlier this week questioned Kwinana on SAA management wanting to award a R1.2 billion contract to Air France, but the Board, led by Dudu Myeni, insisted on it being given to AAR and JM Aviation.
Hofmeyr continued questioning Kwinana on the matter on Saturday.
