While business rescue practitioners mull the future of ailing state-owned airline SA Express, the carrier is forging ahead with a Supreme Court of Appeal bid to have a “dubious” R5m contract declared invalid.

The court challenge forms part of a clean-up operation introduced by the new board to “repair the devastating after-effects of corruption on this once well-run airline”.
