APRIL - MAY 2019


It's Freedom Day this month and in true South African tradition, important days of observation are taking the shape of month-long celebration. It's about more than just reflecting on our past, our transformation as a nation and the incredible country that we are all able to enjoy. April is about being cognisant of the journey ahead and how we can make the most of it for both ourselves and our fellow South Africans.

In addition, our already successful Nedbank credit cards and the recent launch of the Nedbank cheque card, has led the way to the launch of our credit card offering in Mozambique, in partnership with Banco Unico. As Voyager spreads its wings, so too will opportunities to earn and spend miles for all our members.

Thank you for your continued and loyal support.

Warm regards

SAA Voyager Team
Forever part of your journey!
