We are delighted to offer you a fantastic opportunity to experience luxury travel at its finest. With South African Airways Step-Up you tell us what you're willing to pay to upgrade your seat from Economy Class to Business Class.

Once you have obtained confirmed flight tickets, you will be sent an email notifying you about potential availability of seats for upgrades, along with a link to our Step-Up Offer page, where you can start bidding.

If you do not receive an email and have confirmed flights, you may check your eligibility below.

All it takes is 3 easy steps

  1. Place your bid:

    Make us an offer by selecting the amount you would be willing to pay for an upgrade from Economy Class to Business Class.

  2. Payment information:

    Enter your credit card details. Your credit card will only be charged if your offer is accepted.

  3. Review and submit:

    We will advise you 24 hours prior departure if your offer is successful

After completion you will receive an email confirming your request to upgrade your seat, which can then be used to change or cancel your request. You will also receive an updated e-ticket with your new travel information and the amount you offered will be deducted from your credit card.


Your credit card will not be charged unless your offer is successful
