Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 3 April 2009

South African Airways has reached a new agreement with Virgin Blue to offer passengers greater choice, seamless transfers and more value fares to passengers travelling to South Africa through its Sydney and Perth hubs.

The deal offers passengers far greater choice and means Virgin Blue customers can book through their travel agent tapping into SAAs extensive network which is the most comprehensive in Africa, said Thevan Krishna, SAAs Head of Australasia.

The new interline agreement will commence from 8 April, 2009.

Virgin Blue General Manger Sales, Mathias Friess, said, We are very pleased to be working with South Africa Airways as our newest interline partner. Virgin Blue is a high quality airline offering a range of products and services to suit the needs of all travellers from the cost conscious to the discerning flyer requiring the added extras.

 With the introduction of initiatives both in the air and on the ground, such as Premium Economy seating, Live satellite in-seat TVs, as well as Business Lounge facilities in key ports, Virgin Blue surpasses the expectations of the most discerning of carriers, including our newest partner, South Africa Airways, he added.

The deal will also mean visitors from South Africa using SAA services can utilise Virgin Blues comprehensive network in Australia.

Thevan Krishna continued, SAA is seeing strong interest in travel to South Africa and Africa due to the low value of the South African rand compared to the Australian dollar.

2009 is shaping up as a big year as we build up momentum and prepare for the World Cup in 2010. As the fastest, most direct way of getting to the African continent from Australia, we have great confidence in the future of the route and are delighted to be partnering with Virgin Blue in the future.
