South African Airways Codeshare Agreement

Prior to the extension of the codeshare contract, last year last year, 90,000 passengers benefited from the existing code-sharing agreement. South African Airlines offers its customers seats on Emirates` eight daily flights between South Africa and Dubai. However, the new codeshare agreement means that ASA passengers will be able to fly even more Emirates. In addition, Emirates passengers can benefit from more SAA flights. In 1999, South African Airways and Delta Air Lines began code-sharing on SAA flights from Atlanta to South Africa. In 2000, South African Airways aircraft arrived at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. In 1992, SAA launched flights to Miami by route from Cape Town to Miami International Airport and returned to Australia and took a return shuttle flight to Sydney. This year, there were also codeshare agreements with American Airlines[29] and Air Tanzania. There were direct flights to Bangkok and Singapore; He was hired in 1996. Alliance, a partnership between SAA, Uganda Airlines and Air Tanzania, has also begun.

The ASA welcomed its passengers on domestic flights in four different languages: English, Zulu, Afrikaans and Sotho, while passengers on international flights were welcomed in the language of the destination. In June 1999, Transnet entered into a sales contract with Swissair, in which Transnet sold 20% of its stake in ASA to Swissair for R1.4 billion and also included a 10% sale and transfer option to Swissair, bringing its share to 30%.

[39] The implementation of the codeshare agreement will take the relationship to higher levels, as it will allow for a smoother travel experience and more travel opportunities for customers. Members of the ASA`s Voyager loyalty program have the option to collect miles on codeshare flights. Do you think the agreement will help reverse the ASA? Let us know in the comments below! The agreement allows SAA to add its code on 20 connecting flights in Brazil operated by GOL, including Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Curitiba, Porto Alegre, Belo Horizonte and Florianspolis. Code sharing with the leading airline in the Brazilian domestic market expands the scope of THE ASA throughout Brazil. South African Airways has been hit by union strikes from 15 November 2019, with an agreement in principle reached on 22 November 2019. The strike reportedly cost the airline R50 million a day.
