South African Airways, one of Africa's leading carriers has just turned 80 years old. We may have started way back in 1934, but we are proud to be an award winning, modern and technologically advanced airline chosen by millions of passengers every year. SAA recently retained a 4-Star Airline rating from Skytrax, the independent, global airline rating organisation. This is the 12th consecutive year that SAA has received this rating and we remain the only carrier on the African continent to have achieved such a 4-Star rating.

Voyager, SAA’s frequent flyer programme, also recently celebrated its 20th anniversary and remains one of the pioneer frequent flyer programmes in Africa. Two Lifetime Platinum Members will be celebrating their 80th birthdays and to show how much we value their support, SAA will be awarding each of them with 80 000 Voyager Miles!
