SAA in code-share with TAAG Angola Airlines

Posted 11 January 2018 · Add Comment

South African Airways (SAA) has entered a code-share agreement with TAAG Angola Airlines.

As part of the extended agreement, SAA will code-share with TAAG on their direct services between Johannesburg and Luanda and between Cape Town and Luanda effective 15 January 2018.

TAAG Angola Airlines will code-share with SAA on its direct services between Johannesburg and Luanda and will include Johannesburg and Harare, Johannesburg and Lusaka, and Johannesburg and Hong Kong in the near future. A code-share agreement enables SAA to offer flights with the SA code on flights operated by TAAG, and TAAG will in turn be able to offer flights with the DT code on flights operated by SAA. 

SAA and TAAG formed an interline relationship in 1996, allowing the acceptance of each other’s customers and access to each other’s network. Interline agreements between airlines facilitate travel for customers who fly on more than one airline to reach their destination.

The relationship expanded into a commercial partnership in 2007 with SAA operating the flights for TAAG between Luanda and Lisbon, in Portugal. At the time, SAA operated the flights with its own aircraft and crew on behalf of TAAG.

“We value our relationship with TAAG and look forward to strengthening this partnership and creating a seamless travel experience for our customers travelling to various destinations on the continents of Africa and Asia.

“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 Tlali Tlali, SAA Spokesperson. SAA currently serves the Angola market four times per week.

“The code-share relationship between TAAG Angola Airlines and SAA is a strong partnership and we are extremely pleased to work together in developing our route networks further, for the benefit of all our customers. 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,” said William Boulter, TAAG Chief Commercial Officer.
