SAA restructures South America operations

SAAJOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – SOUTH African Airways (SAA) is realigning its South America network operations as part of ongoing business enhancement processes to enable the airline to match capacity with demand across its entire network.
The airline on Friday stated the South America route remained as one of the star performing routes and will be right-sized so that the airline continues to serve the ever-growing demand from the entire South American subcontinent.
“The revision of our offering on this route is due to a continued focus on enhancing our service to the South American sub-continent. We strongly believe in this market and we will continue to offer the best service and connectivity to the market,” said Aaron Munetsi, SAA Acting General Manager Commercial.
SAA currently operates ten non-stop flights between Johannesburg and Sao Paulo, with double daily flights on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (Johannesburg departures) and Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays (Sao Paulo departures).
The three-night time departures from Johannesburg – Sao Paulo – Johannesburg (SA224/SA225) will be removed from the SAA schedule.
“We remain confident that the anticipated upswing in this market will bear fruit and we will continue with our partnerships to boost leisure and corporate travel in South America.”
