SAA Launches Travel Trade Website

South African Airways has launched a brand new trade website, www.flysaatrade.com, aimed at providing trade partners with up-to-date information on South African’s national airline. SAA Travel Trade Website

The site has been designed to serve as a useful one-stop-shop for the trade to use and includes details on SAA’s routes and fleet, plus SAA contact information, FAQs as well as the latest news from the airline. It also serves as a platform for trade to download the latest aircraft images and logos if needed, and features a Live Chat function to offer a new way to communicate with the SAA team.

Katie Edwards, Marketing & Comms Executive, said: “We are really excited about the launch of our first trade website and the opportunity it presents us to offer a new and engaging way to communicate with our trade partners. We hope it will play an important role in continuing to improve how we work more closely with the trade in the future.”

Gary Kershaw, General Manager UK & Ireland, added: “We said that SAA needed to improve its relationships with the UK and Irish travel trade. So alongside the new SAA team, the new trade website brings real time, digital news, information and support to our trade partners.”

SAA operates the first direct flight of the day from London Heathrow to Johannesburg and has built an outstanding reputation for punctuality, winning the Flight Stats Award for the Most on Time Airline in the World twice during 2013.

The airline, a Star Alliance member, operates double daily flights from London Heathrow Terminal 1 to Johannesburg, connecting to over 30 destinations within Southern Africa.
