Introducing the Airbus A350-900 aircraft to our fleet

We are proud to announce the introduction of new state-of-the-art Airbus A350-900 aircraft into service during the latter part of 2019. The aircraft will operate on a nonstop basis between Johannesburg and New York’s John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK), replacing the A340-600 aircraft on the route. SAA has secured favourable lease conditions on two aircrafts as part of SAA’s fleet renewal strategy one of the objectives of which was replacing some of the aging A340-600 aircraft.

The introduction of the A350-900 twin-engine wide-body aircraft, is an important step-change, as it presents a superior product for a world-class leading customer experience, boasts fuel-efficiency (reduction of 20% fuel burn) with reduced carbon emissions and has the latest offering in safety, technology and maintenance.

South African Airways (SAA) now has a codeshare agreement with Gol Linhas Aéreas (GOL)

Closure of SAA City Ticketing Offices (CTOs)

SAA has taken a strategic decision to close the SAA City Ticketing Offices (CTOs) within South Africa. This move comes in the wake of the growing traveller demand for more comprehensive self-service online and in-situ facilities, effectively making ticketing offices less efficient and ultimately, a thing of the past.

Our valued customers remain central to our existence and following the closure of the CTOs we continue to assist those customers accustomed to the CTOs, via dedicated telephone and/or e-mail contacts as detailed below:

City email address Contact number
Durban 032 815 2160
Cape Town 021 936 1141
Johannesburg 011 978 1887
Partner Termination

With immediate effect, Miles For Style will no longer be a partner in the Voyager Programme.
