11 Jan 2018 - by Staff reporter
South African Airways (SAA) yesterday announced it would enter into a code-share agreement with TAAG Angola Airlines.
The code-share will cover direct services between Johannesburg and Luanda and Cape Town and Luanda, effective 15 January this year.
“This new code-share will enable customers to connect seamlessly from our domestic services through to Angola and gives customers the opportunity of also flying with TAAG to Angola,” said SAA spokesperson Tlali Tlali.
According to a statement, the code-share will enable SAA to offer flights with the SA code on flights operated by TAAG and vice versa.
In future, the agreement will widen to include the Johannesburg-Harare, Johannesburg-Lusaka and Johannesburg-Hong Kong routes.
“We are confident that this code-share opportunity will bring our countries closer together and contribute to the development of our respective economies and tourism industries,” added TAAG chief commercial officer William Boulter.
