Destination Spotlight of the Month
The capital of South Africa's smallest province, Gauteng, Johannesburg is the economic powerhouse of Africa with its ever-growing suburban sprawl creeping outwards from the central city skyscrapers and ring-road motorways.

The more than 10-million inhabitants live fast and have a restless spirit, which they have imparted into the fabric of the city, also known by its African name as Egoli, 'the place of gold'.
September is Johannesburg's Shopping Festival:
With fabulous promotions and events scheduled all month long across the city, the very first Johannesburg Shopping Festival has a world-class shopping experience in store for you!

September 1- 6: CBD & Surrounds
September 7 – 13: Roodepoort & Northern Johannesburg
September 14 – 20: Northern Suburbs

  In the news – On Business

On Business, an innovative travel management product from South African Airways (SAA) offers small to large companies in South Africa and around the world the opportunity to manage their own travel requirements while maximising convenience and saving costs.

On Business is a personalised and complete online service for company travel.

Accessible through SAA's website,, it presents to companies the opportunity to manage all of their travel requirements from the comfort of the office.

"In developing this new product we have taken into consideration that the face of air travel is rapidly evolving and at the same time individual and corporate travellers are having to adjust to a tricky global economy.”

"On Business allows companies to take charge of their travel requirements, alleviate all inconveniences associated with booking air travel and at the same time manage your travel spend," says Mike Re, SAA Chief Information Officer.

There are approximately 7000 businesses registered with SAA's On Business and this is growing by at least 20 additional companies a day. While this consists largely of South African companies the number of companies throughout Africa is growing fast.

SAA is capable of offering the product to international markets and is working on promoting it in these.

"Businesses are realising the benefits of being in control of their travel from start to finish," says Re.
