Get online and grab yourself an African airline

Aircraft, spares and even an entire South African regional airline are up for grabs on the online auction site Go-Dove.

The assets are those of SA Express which was placed in provisional liquidation on 28 April, but the final liquidation order has been deferred until early September.
Meanwhile on the auction site you can make “expressions of interest” for several items including a Bombardier CRJ200 regional jet, engines, spares and retables, ground-support equipment, tooling, and workshop equipment.
You can also make an offer on the whole airline as well as operating licenses.
There is no place for tyre-kickers though. The site warns there “some difficulty in viewing and collection of assets”. The assets will be sold on an “as is, where is” condition, it states, and the buyer will be responsible for prior inspection.
