SAA Voyager September 2013

From the SAA Voyager team

We are just three months away from the end of the 2013 season and it is once again that time of the year where you as a Member need to take stock of your Voyager account to ensure that you're not missing out on saving your Voyager Miles from expiring, and on upgrading or retaining your current Tier status.

To ensure that Voyager Miles are saved, we encourage you to complete the required criteria towards non expiry; save Miles by flying 5 000 SAA Tier Miles or 3 000 SA Express Tier Miles by 31 December 2013 and your Miles will be carried over for a further twelve months.

Our Silver, Gold, Platinum and Lifetime Platinum statuses carry along with them an array of benefits that make our Members travel experience a memorable one, therefore we urge Voyager Members to ensure that all earning activities are shown on their accounts. Platinum Members who are aspiring for the Lifetime Platinum status are reminded that only Miles earned flying for six consecutive years on SAA only will count towards this status, all other Tiers can be achieved through flying SAA and Star Alliance airline Partners.

We would like to further remind Members that missing Miles can be claimed on-line, which is an effortless process as no original boarding passes are needed if this on-line facility is used. All SAA and Star Alliance airline partner flights addings can be processed via the web, for all non-star airline Partners, missing Miles should still be claimed via the call centre channels.

Across all corners of the world we all know the importance of water in our lives; now the question is. What are we doing to preserve this precious natural resource? We all know the threat faced by our water resources which ultimately affects the species in it and those that are depend on it including us human beings. According to the Budapest water summit organisers: “Only 2% of the world’s water resources are made up of freshwater. This scarce resource however plays a crucial role in all segments of nature, society and economy. In view of the projected growth in popular demand for water and an accelerating climate change it is expected that by 2030 some 40% of the world’s population will suffer from water shortages”.

We trust that the range of offers from our esteemed programme partners will make this month a special one.
