South African Airways to Operate Leased Boeing 737 on Domestic Flights


The ongoing expansion of the destinations flown by South African Airways (SAA), as well as industry-wide constraints with aircraft availability, has led SAA to enter into a temporary agreement to operate a fully serviced leased aircraft for a limited period.

Commencing Sunday, 9th July 23, SAA will operate certain domestic routes using a leased Boeing 737, high-density aircraft.

SAA will operate a hybrid fleet service, aircraft with economy class only along with our normal full-service aircraft. This will provide customers an opportunity to book on a range of specialized prices for a limited period only.

Interim Chief Executive Officer, Prof. John Lamola, says, “We have gone the distance to providing our customers with a comfortable cabin experience in our limited Economy Class. Our premium customers, already booked, will continue to enjoy the full range of seamless and comfortable services, including priority check-in and priority boarding. Access to SAA lounges is available to eligible individuals, Standard baggage allowance as well as Fast track where available.”

This leased aircraft is scheduled for a limited period, whilst SAA ready itself for growth in line with our customer expectations.
