Africa’s most popular airline, South African Airways (SAA), has launched a new frequent flyer partnership with JetBlue airways. This partnership provides expanded mileage earning opportunities to SAA’s Voyager members. Effective immediately, Voyager members will be able to earn mileage credits on flights across JetBlue’s expansive network of destinations in the U.S., Caribbean, and Latin America while the TrueBlue members can earn points on SAA’s network throughout Africa.
As code share partners, the SAA’s “SA” code is on JetBlue operated flights and customers purchasing a code share itinerary will benefit from having a single ticket combining SAA and JetBlue operated flights. Customers will also have the convenience of competitive pricing, one-stop check in and through baggage transfer with allowances of up to two free pieces of checked baggage. SAA operates the most flights between South Africa and the United States with daily service from the Johannesburg O.R. Tambo International Airport to New York’s JFK International Airport and Washington DC’s Dulles International Airport.
