Tier Status And Benefits

In light of the global travel restrictions, members’ tier statuses have been extended to 31 December 2022.

As a valued SAA Voyager member, you are able to improve your Tier status, based on your support and enjoy more benefits. Your SAA Voyager elite status means access to additional benefits and privileges based on your Tier status. Tier miles are earned per calendar year on SAA and SAA marketing flights where Mango is the operating carrier and Star Alliance.
