South African Airways is carrying out a massive destocking of all the accessories that it cannot use because of the global Covid-19 pandemic. Some of the lots offered for sale are food products with an expiration date. This is, for example, the case with batches of soluble coffee pods, tea bags, beer cans or even strong alcohol mignonnettes, or even large bottles.

Buyers wishing to register must make a refundable deposit of 25,000 rand (just over 1,300 euros) and present a piece of identification. South African Airways no longer operates scheduled flights to and from Johannesburg Airport, says Air Journal. The airline only provides transport of goods and repatriation operations. It has received funding from the South African state of R10.5 billion, or approximately € 549 million, to facilitate its restructuring.
