Spring season brings fresh and colourful landscapes in the Southern hemisphere; South African flora accounts for a spectacular scene all-round, which represents the diverse cultures of our nation that are celebrated in September.

England is hosting the 2015 Rugby World Cup from 18 September until 31 October. At SAA Voyager we believe in being positive, and hope to see the Springboks in the final at Twickenham on 31 October 2015.
 
 
So join us in wishing the Bokke all the luck they deserve. In anticipation and hope that South Africa will win the 2015 Rugby World Cup, we are giving away 2 Economy Class return tickets from South Africa to any destination in Europe on South African Airways. One of our SAA Voyager members flying on an SAA-operated flight during the period of 1 September to 31 October will be chosen as the lucky winner. Prize tickets will include fuel levy, but exclude airport taxes, and will be valid until 31 March 2016. Furthermore during the next two weeks, you will be receiving direct communication from us on exclusive and discounted packages (flights and match tickets)  for the Quarter Finals, Semi Finals, Bronze Final and the Rugby World Cup Final.

Heritage Day, which will be celebrated on 24 September 2015, is a day when South Africans celebrate their cultural traditions. In an address marking Heritage Day in 1996, former President Nelson Mandela stated: "When our first democratically-elected government decided to make Heritage Day one of our national days, we did so because we knew that our rich and varied cultural heritage has a profound power to help build our new nation."

In this edition, we introduce our new flight route between Accra (Ghana) and Washington DC (United States of America), plus the opportunity to win Health Spa vouchers; buy wine at 25% discount; double your Miles with InterContinental Hotels Group; enjoy 50% discount for your second night when staying at Shangri-La Resorts; win a weekend for 2 with Miles For Style and much more.

SAA launches route between Ghana and Washington
 
 
Bold move strengthens operations in West Africa

South African Airways, the leading carrier on the African continent, recently announced the launch of its inaugural flight between Accra (Ghana) and Washington DC (United States of America).
     
The new route substantially strengthens SAA’s presence in West Africa. The first flight departed from Kotoka International Airport in Accra at 22:45, Sunday 2 August, following a celebratory send-off, to the Washington Dulles International Airport in Washington DC. On-board were the Ghanaian Minister of Transportation, Honourable Dzifa Aku Attivo, as well as a contingent of high profile Ghanaian government officials, executives, media and other guests. SAA Voyager also launched a Voyager Credit Card in partnership with Ecobank on 31 July 2015, specifically for the Ghanaian market.
 
 
SAA introduces a Chargeable Advance Seat Reservation system
 
 
South African Airways has expanded its customer value proposition through the introduction of a Chargeable Advance Seat Reservation system. Whether travelling alone, or in company, we all have our seating preferences. It may be a matter of choosing between an aisle, or window, making sure you are seated with your family, or knowing you can look forward to a little extra legroom. From as little as R50, the choice will be in the hands of SAA’s customers. SAA customers will now be able to choose where they wish to sit in advance.

The Advanced Seat Reservation can be done free of charge for Lifetime Platinum and Platinum Voyager members booked in any booking class. Gold Voyager members booked in PLUS (V/T/Q/S/H) and Select (Y/B/M/K) fare families are also excluded.
