To help minimise congestion on our Contact Centre phone lines, customers are urged to call only if their flights are due to depart in the next 7 days.

South African Airways regrets any inconvenience to our customers as a result of the COVID-19 and we encourage all customers to visit our website www.flysaa.com for further updates.
