FEBRUARY 2018
 





 
 
Welcome to a New Year with Voyager! Let’s toast not only our beautiful country and its people, but also the opportunity we have, to realise our dreams and ambitions, to overcome challenges and to be able to look back and feel a sense of achievement every time that a New Year comes around.

It’s the second month of the year and after the first 31 days of 2018’s work and play, shared experiences and adventures, we are already celebrating our first pit-stop. Valentine’s Day is celebrated in many countries as a day of love, passion and appreciation of those we love. In South Africa it is no different and everything red and heart-shaped along with plush toys bearing love’s message are already on display in retail. We must remember though that love is a gift that keeps on giving, and so it should, long after the 14th of February has come and gone.

Create memories year-round and earn and/or spend your Voyager Miles with our array of partners. Good news is that if you book the SAA flight number on Mango you will now receive a Voyager Mile for every R1,60 spent and it goes toward your tier status.

SAA enhances offering on popular Mauritius route

The Mauritius route is one of our most popular destinations for both business and leisure travel, which has prompted us to add more seats.

You now earn Miles based on revenue spend for SAA marketing flights operated by Mango

Several of SAA’s domestic frequencies were transferred to our low-cost subsidiary Mango, to strengthen SAA Group commercially. The changes came into effect on 15 January 2018; and as a Voyager member, it is important to note that you will continue earning miles, even on Mango-operated flights, but your flight must bear an SA flight number (SA2000 – SA2199). You are still able to redeem your miles on any SAA Group flight, including Mango.

Effective in tandem with the changes, you will earn revenue-based mileage (1 Voyager Mile for every R1.60 spent) when booked on the SAA marketing flight number where Mango is the operating carrier and these Miles will count towards tier status. You will furthermore continue to enjoy the SAA baggage allowance and lounge access based on your tier status. The seamless transfer to the regional and international network services of SAA will continue.

New code-share agreement with TAAG Angola Airlines

SAA is proud to announce a code-share agreement with TAAG Angola Airlines. As part of the extended agreement, SAA code-shares with TAAG on their direct services between Johannesburg and Luanda and between Cape Town and Luanda.

You will earn Miles when you are booked on the SAA flight number.

 
 
 
 
No show fees

As a reminder please note that no show fees are charged when passengers do not show up at the airport for their flights. Fees charged for SAA domestic flights are R570 for Economy and R1 140 for Business Class per no show. The fees applicable for regional and international routes varies and are according to the fare rules associated with your itinerary.

Legacy Lifestyle partnership


The partnership with Legacy Lifestyle will end on 28 February 2018. You will be able to convert Voyager Miles to Legacy Rands until midnight on 28 February South African time.

Adverse weather conditions affecting airline schedules

Looking in the rear-view mirror of the past month, we realise that no matter how seasoned we are as travellers, airline operational quandaries, due to inclement weather, can cause disruptions of the highest order, especially if it is towards the end of a family holiday. When an airline cancels your flight because of some force majeure event; your options are either a refund or the next available seat to your destination. Additional travel insurance is available from travel insurance and financial services providers for these unplanned situations, albeit limited.

Moreover, it is of utmost importance that your personal contact details are in all your reservations and Voyager profile, to enable us to contact you during these unforeseen circumstances to accommodate you as best as possible.
