Ghana's Africa World Airlines (AWA) and South African Airways (SAA) have commenced the implementation of their codeshare partnership with effective 27 October 2019.
The codeshare agreement will apply between Accra - Kumasi, Accra - Lagos and Accra - Abuja. More destinations are planned in the near future once the airlines get the necessary approvals.
The partnership is unilateral at the moment, with SAA marketing on the services of AWA as the operating carrier. SAA customers will be able to travel on the routes on one SAA ticket where travel includes Johannesburg.
SAA and AWA currently have an interline agreement which provides seamless connections for customers to/from Abuja, Lagos, Monrovia, Freetown, Kumasi, Tamale, Wa and Takoradi over Accra, to SAA mainline flights to/from Johannesburg and Washington.
The establishment of the codeshare agreement will take the relationship to greater heights as it enables a smooth travel experience and more travel options for customers.
Members of SAA’s frequent flyer programme Voyager, will have the opportunity to earn frequent flyer mileage on the codeshare flights.
