Overview of South African

SAA codeshares with many other airlines, including LAM Mozambique Airlines, EgyptAir, Ethiopian Airlines, and United Airlines, meaning they often take turns servicing one another’s flights. If you will be flying within South Africa, your flight may also be serviced by Mango Airlines, as this company is owned by SAA and is often used for shorter trips.

This airline is known for having its primary hub in Johannesburg, but it also services flights to over 35 destinations in the world. While many of the company’s destinations are located in African countries, such as Namibia and Zimbabwe, you can also fly to Europe, Asia, and South America, with some country examples being the United Arab Emirates, England, and Thailand.

For those flying with SAA, there are two primary classes to choose from, including Economy and Business. Economy is the most popular option and offers basic amenities and services, including entertainment, a blanket, and a pillow, while Business provides a more luxurious experience that gives travelers access to comfortable chairs, more leg room, and a welcome pack that includes items such as headphones.

Out of the many types of aircrafts that the company uses in its fleet, almost all of them are Airbus. While the Airbus A340-600 is one of the largest choices that is used and can fit over 300 passengers, the Airbus A320-200 is the most commonly employed option by the airline and is best for shorter flights, with its maximum capacity being 138 passengers and crew members.
