SAA continues to grow its route network on the African continent by adding service to destinations previously difficult to reach by air.
We recently launched a new flight to Ndola in Zambia. The route is served three times per week using an Airbus A319-100 aircraft. Ndola, Zambia's third-largest city and the country's commercial capital, is SAA's third destination in Zambia. SAA already offers twice-daily flights to Lusaka, and daily flights to Livingstone from Johannesburg.
To mark the first flight to Ndola, SAA introduced special fares and a double-miles promotion for our Voyager members when flying on SAA-operated aircraft.
