APRIL - MAY 2022
It has been a busy year and it is only a quarter past 2022. Not that we are clock watching, but certainly proud of the momentum that the airline has gathered post re-commencement.
Next month is Mother’s Day, on Sunday 8 May. It follows a string of long weekends and there’s always a reason to travel. Particularly given our recent addition of the Johannesburg - Durban route and additional frequencies between high demand cities Johannesburg and Cape Town.  

But don’t forget, an island break to Mauritius could be just what you need, since travel between South Africa and the home of the Dodo have become available and affordable, again. Covid-19 related travel bans are thankfully receding, however familiarise yourself with all travel regulations.  

Please remember that while outdoors Covid-19 restrictions have been eased, safety protocols such as the wearing of masks, social distancing and sanitising remain compulsory indoors. At South African Airways (SAA), your wellness is always our priority.
We look forward to sharing more positive developments at SAA and Voyager, and more frequently.
Warm regards

SAA Voyager Team
Forever part of your journey!
