SAA’s recent network expansion and industry-wide constraints with aircraft availability, required SAA to enter into a temporary agreement to operate a leased aircraft for a limited period, whilst the SAA aircraft is in for scheduled maintenance.

SAA will operate a hybrid fleet service, aircraft with economy class only along with our normal full-service aircraft. Commencing Sunday, 9th July 23, SAA will operate certain domestic flights using a leased Boeing 737, high density aircraft.

This leased aircraft is scheduled for a short term period, whilst SAA ready itself for growth in line with our customer expectations.
