FEBRUARY - MARCH 2019
 



 
 

This month marks 25 years since the launch of SAA’s Voyager loyalty programme, that has over time, become a premium rewards programme on the African continent.

We would like to thank you as a valued customer for trusting us in delivering value-chain benefits across a growing range of 68 travel and retail partners. Every experience along the journey shaped where we are today and it is our continued endeavour to provide both reward-gain and upfront value benefits for our valued customers. Pictured in the header is the dedicated team who continues to innovate, develop, and sustain Voyager at our head office.  


Warm regards


SAA Voyager Team
Forever part of your journey!

 
 
 
 


 
SAA Cargo Congratulates Toyota Gazoo Racing South Africa Team on their Win post Dakar Rally 2019

South African Airways Cargo (SAA Cargo), the airfreight partner of Toyota Gazoo Racing South Africa, congratulates the team on their historic victory at the Dakar Rally 2019, which took place in Peru, South America from 6 to 17 January 2019. The epic finish was a culmination of the team’s mental strength after 10 long and gruelling stages.

SAA Cargo ensured seamless transportation of the racing vehicles including spares to São Paulo, Brazil en route to Lima, Peru.

“We congratulate Toyota Gazoo Racing South Africa for their outstanding finish at the world’s most gruelling off-road race".

South African Airways expands nonstop service between Accra and Washington D.C.

SAA will increase its frequency on nonstop flights between Accra and Washington D.C. to five days weekly starting 1 April 2019. SAA offers the only nonstop flight between Accra and Washington D.C. and offers travellers convenient connections to and from over 100 cities across the U.S. and Canada through its Star Alliance partner, United Airlines via Washington D.C.

Star Alliance Award Chart Update

SAA Voyager constantly strives to compete in what has become a very competitive market, and have therefore made some mileage adjustment changes to the Star Alliance Award Chart. It has become necessary for us to review the chart annually due to foreign exchange fluctuations.

New mileage thresholds are applicable to Star Alliance Awards issued from 1 March 2019; old mileage thresholds are applicable to Star Alliance Awards redeemed until 28 February 2019. To view the new Star Alliance Award Chart click here.
 
 
 
South African Airways Improves Through-Check Across the SAA Brand

SA codeshare customers travelling on multiple sectors will be able to through-check their baggage to their final destination when booked on the SA code all the way, connecting between Mango, SAA and other codeshare partner operated flights.

For example, customers will be able to through-check all the way from Durban-Johannesburg-Frankfurt-Stockholm when travelling on the SA code on a Mango operated flight from Durban to Johannesburg, then on an SAA operated flight from Johannesburg to Frankfurt and further on the SA code on a Lufthansa operated flight from Frankfurt to Stockholm.
