SAA warns of cabin crew employment scam

SOUTH African Airways (SAA) has warned the public about the re-emergence of a recruitment scam inviting young people to apply for a cabin crew training programme.

“This appears to be yet another attempt by criminals to prey on unsuspecting members of the public.  There is neither recruitment nor training programmes for cabin crew positions at SAA at the moment,” said SAA spokesperson Tlali Tlali.

The national carrier urged the public to exercise caution and take additional measures to satisfy themselves about the authenticity of vacancies before responding to invitations to submit applications for possible employment.

“The scam seems to be targeted at young people of school-leaving age, notably those who may be finishing their matric and are on the lookout for employment opportunities. SAA has placed a moratorium on employing additional personnel. This is part of the airline’s efforts to manage its costs. Even if recruitment were to take place, the procedures we follow are different from those set out in this misleading scam,” said Tlali.

Tlali said SAA will never insist that applications must be sent through personal emails and the airline does not use @mailbox.co.za domain for email communication purposes.
