Our conversation with Joachim Vermooten, a South African-based Transport Economist and Chartered Accountant, Senior Business Rescue Practitioner, is focused on South African Airways. We discussed the new management proposed by the state, and discuss a viable future. We went to discuss: airline status, why bring it back at all? and with new startups as well as other private airlines moving into the market, is there a chance of over-trading.
Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.
