South Africa Airways

The national airline of South Africa

As the national flag carrier and largest airline of South Africa, SAA flies to 40 destinations worldwide. They offer nonstop student flights to every continent (except Antarctica) which makes them one of the very few airlines to offer that luxury. South African Airlines main hub is at the OR Tambo International Airport in Gauteng which makes for easy travel in and out of the busy city of Johannesburg. SAA aspires to be Africa’s leading world-class airline, and being crowned Africa’s most awarded airline has put them well on their way. They have been named “Best Airline in Africa” for 11 consecutive years.
