Star celebration for SAA

South African Airways is celebrating a decade as a member of Star Alliance. It was the first African airline to join the global network in 2006.

Its membership gave other alliance partners access to SAA’s extensive route network within South Africa and into the rest of the continent.

Alliance CEO Mark Schwab said: “South African Airways gave Star Alliance a first strategic and prominent foothold in a region that today is recognised as one of the most significant growth markets for international trade and aviation.” 

The alliance was founded with five member airlines in 1997. Membership today totals 28. 

Passengers on participating airlines have a range of advantages, including access to the extended Star Alliance global network, lounge access for passengers travelling in Business Class or those belonging to frequent-flyer clubs.

SAA spokesman Tlali Tlali said: “Star Alliance members offer customers the assurance that when they fly with SAA, or any of the participating airlines, they fly with carrier that adhere to certain standards as part of their high value offering to the customers. 

“Our decade-long membership is a major achievement and the anniversary comes as the alliance has reached a high level of maturity.”   www.flysaa.com   www.staralliance.com
