    Our Long-Haul Flights

    Our Economy Class seats offer extra space and generous legroom for your travelling comfort. To make your flight more enjoyable, Economy Class customers are offered a handy amenity kit with socks, eyeshades and a toothbrush and toothpaste.

    At SAA, we believe that travelling should be a pleasure for the whole family, so parents are welcome to pre-order meals for children and babies and pre-book a baby bassinet if necessary. We also offer a fun activity pack for kids and our inflight entertainment system has channels specially designed to keep our little travellers amused for hours. If you are travelling with a wheelchair or small children, you can use the larger lavatory in the middle of Economy Class, thoughtfully designed at double the size of ordinary lavatories and fitted with a large baby-changing table.

    Our A330-300 Economy Class is fitted with 203 newly designed, slim-line seats, all with extra personal space and generous legroom for travelling comfort. Each seat is fitted with a 10-inch screen, individual USB charging ports, and access to shared PC power points. Boredom will not be an option on our A330-300 flight thanks to our state-of-the-art on-demand inflight entertainment system. These high-tech touchscreens are fun and easy to use, giving you access to many hours of entertainment.

    *On select flights.
