NOVEMBER 2015
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Big ones. Little ones. Fat ones and thin ones. Lush, twirly, handlebars, dirty hipster and Fu Manchu. It’s that time of the year when men all over the world give the follicles on their upper lips free reign to do whatever comes naturally. That’s right. November is Movember. A global movement that raises awareness for men’s health issues like prostate and testicular cancer.

SAA Voyager supports this global campaign, now is your opportunity to make a meaningful contribution.

In this edition, you stand a chance to win a weekend for 2 with Miles For Style; earn 3 000 bonus Miles with Rocket Miles; and earn double Miles with Radisson Blu.

Lastly, we would like to encourage you to keep a lookout for important news and information in our ‘Let’s Engage’ and ‘Airline Corner’ sections.

Regards

SAA Voyager Team
Forever part of your journey!
 
 
 
 
'Best African Airline’ Award

SAA has once again won the ‘Best African Airline’ Award at the Business Traveller Awards 2015. This is the ninth consecutive year that SAA has won the accolade, adding to a line-up of awards the airline received this year including a 4-Star Airline Skytrax ranking for the 13th year in a row.
 
South African Airways introduces services to Abuja

SAA has introduced flights to Abuja which is a second entry point to Nigeria. Adding a second gateway in Nigeria to SAA’s existing daily service to Lagos forms part of our Long-Term Turnaround Strategy and strengthens SAA’s position in West Africa. The first flight is scheduled to depart O.R Tambo International Airport on 26 January 2016. Flights are open for sale on all SAA’s distribution channels.

Voyager members will be able to earn and redeem Miles when flying to Abuja.
 
 

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.
 
 
These changes will be effective from 1 December 2015. Minor changes were made to the Star Alliance Award chart in 2011 but it has become necessary for us to review the chart again due to foreign exchange fluctuations. Although some of the Miles have been increased, we are still very competitive amongst other Star Alliance carriers. Please note that the 3% discounted web awards will be discontinued from 1 December 2015.

Old Mileage levels are applicable to Star Alliance Awards redeemed prior to 1 December 2015. The amended Award chart will be displayed on www.flysaa.com from 2 November 2015.
 
       
 
 
 
Validity period for Voyager Award Tickets and Flight Award Certificates

Airline award certificates are valid for 6 months, while non-airline award certificates are valid for 3 months from date of issue.

The validity of flight Award tickets for travel outside South Africa is 12 (twelve) months from the date of first travel (first departure date).

Permitted changes and validity of Award tickets are specified for each Award type in our Voyager Programme guide. Please refer to our Spending Miles / Voyager award terms and conditions page for detailed information and administration fees applicable.
