SAA A330-200

South African Airways (SAA) has launched some great value fares to South Africa and the rest of the African continent to kick off 2013.

With fares from as low as $1520 return from Perth, the new fares are among the lowest ever offered by the airline in the local market. Destinations like Victoria Falls, Dar Es Salaam, Kruger Park and Mauritius are all part of the deal.

According to Tim Clyde-Smith, SAA’s Country Manager, Australasia, travellers can enjoy SAA’s award-winning service on-board and direct connections to 26 destinations in Africa at bargain-basement prices.

“These new fares are on sale from this week until 25 February with travel from now until the end of November, 2013,”Tim said.

“Passengers should go to our website to book. With the Australian dollar now buying over 9 South African rand, there’s never been a better time to visit for a spectacular and affordable holiday or business trip,” he said.
