The agreement will extend the route network reach of both airlines and offers customers using both airlines on a multi-destination voyage a seamless check-in experience.
This interline arrangement enables flight scheduling connection and flexibility for time-sensitive passengers. It also allows South African Airways passengers to fly to more regional and domestic destinations, including Luanda, Durban, Hoedspruit, George, Kimberly, Bloemfontein, Plettenberg Bay, Margate, Sishen and Gqeberha.
Passengers will also be able to through check-in their baggage between connecting flights of the two carriers without going through an entire check-in process again.
This interline agreement informs SAA’s continuing strategy to grow the carrier, responsibly, profitably, and sustainably after resuming operations at the end of September.
