The flight attendants were arrested separately on 23 and 24 September after being found with drugs worth more than R45 million.
SAA’s Tlali Tlali said: “The other one was arrested following an investigation that was carried out by the customs officials in Hong Kong.”
The pair have already appeared in court in Hong Kong.
They remain in custody.
