There’s no doubt that the seasons are changing and winter is upon us all. And, while others are snuggling up at home trying to keep warm, South African Airways believes that there’s no better time to pack up your summer wardrobe, get on board and take a break from the cold in one of the many worldwide summer destinations.

Whether you feel like sinking your toes into Brazil’s beach sand, or just soaking up the sun somewhere else in the world, SAA has got you covered. And now, with the SAA’s brand new mobile application, managing your holidays has never been easier. Now you can check–in at anytime from anywhere, simply by using your mobile device. It’s as simple as that.

The new season also brings some exciting news for the team at SAA. On the 19th on April, South African Airways announced Mr. Monwabisi Kalawe as their brand new Chief Executive Officer. With his impressive career background and his determination to drive focus on improving SAA’s governance, this seems to be the beginning of even greater things to come.

Onwards and upwards!
