SAA expands African network

As part of our growth plans on the African continent, SAA will add new service to Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast) and Brazzaville in the Republic of Congo from our hub at Johannesburg O.R. Tambo International Airport. Twice-weekly flights between Johannesburg and Abidjan will be launched on August 17, 2012 and twice-weekly flights between Johannesburg and Brazzaville will start on September 13, 2012. The addition of these new destinations will give business and leisure customers more convenient travel options to/from SAA’s global network that traditionally have been difficult to reach by air.

SAA is focused on strengthening its intra-Africa network by adding these destinations to its already vast route system on the continent. New service to Abidjan and Brazzaville will join the other new destinations that SAA has introduced over the last seven months, which include Ndola, Zambia; Kigali, Rwanda; Bujumbura, Burundi; Pointe-Noire, Republic of Congo and Cotonou, Benin.

SAA’s extensive route network in Africa of over 45 destinations makes it easy and convenient to travel throughout the continent, whether on business or holiday. And all along the way, our customers enjoy SAA’s warm, legendary South African hospitality.
