JUNE 2016

This month, we celebrate Youth Day in South Africa. We pause and reflect on the power the youth has to effect change and to also consider how we can improve the world we are handing over to the next generation. For SAA, that means obsessing over the smallest detail to fly more sustainably. It also means that we recognise the role we play in powering our country’s economy.

In this month’s newsletter, we bring you plenty of great promotions from our partners. We also have news on the performance of our Voyager programme and some news for our members who choose Wonderboom Airport to travel between Gauteng and Cape Town. This service is proving very popular amongst our customers so it is worth checking out if you want a quick commute from capital to capital.

Enjoy the read.

SAA Voyager Team
Forever part of your journey!

Updating your details

Kindly note that according to the International Air Transport Association ( IATA) regulations, the names and surname as indicated on your Identification Document (ID) and/or passport, should match the name(s) and surname on your issued flight ticket. Should the name(s) and surname not match, you will not be allowed to travel. We urge you to update your details accordingly. Whilst the afore-mentioned is applicable to revenue and redemption tickets, we have noticed that name mismatches occur more frequently when SAA Voyager redemption tickets are booked. We therefore urge you to be more vigilant when updating the travelling passenger’s name(s) and surname at the time of redemption bookings. 

Please note that changes to name(s) and surname on your Voyager profile cannot be amended on the website. Kindly e-mail for assistance. The following documents are required:
  • Certified copy of ID/passport for name and surname corrections;
  • Certified copy of ID/passport and marriage certificate for surname changes; or
  • Certified copy of ID/passport and divorce decree. 
Updating your contact details on the website can be done as follows:
  • Go to the website and select Voyager;
  • Enter your SAA Voyager number and PIN;
  • Click on My Details; and
  • Update your details 
Refunding of fuel levy 

Effective 1 June 2016, fuel levy (YR/YQ Tax) will not be refunded when a non-refundable or partially non-refundable ticket is purchased in South Africa and subsequently cancelled.
