The latest is the appointment of Andre Viljoen as the new CEO and managing director of Fiji Airways.
Andre Viljoen, who will take up the Suva-based appointment in October, has left Air Mauritius with more than $50 million (27.7 million Euros) in loss.
Before joining Air Mauritius, Andre Viljoen was with South African Airways (SAA) and also left that company with a loss; this time $103 million dollars ($6 billion South African Rand).
Andre Viljoen joined Thomson holidays after SAA and was there for two years, making structural changes which led to job losses.
Inquiries by Coup4.5 has also established that while at SAA Andre Viljoen was being sued for seizing control of its rival, Sun Air, and then shutting it down.
