South African Airways SOC Limited Key Developments
Etihad and South African Airways Expand Strategic Partnership
Dec 16 14
Etihad Airways and South African Airways, or SAA, have expanded their strategic partnership. As part of the extended cooperation, South African Airways will launch a daily service between Johannesburg and Abu Dhabi, effective March 29, 2015. The new daily service will complement Etihad Airways' existing flights between the two cities to offer a combined double-daily frequency on the route. As a result, business and leisure travellers will benefit from the convenience of multiple options between Johannesburg and Abu Dhabi within the same day. More than 1,000 connections will also be offered each week over Etihad Airways' Abu Dhabi hub to key markets including the GCC region, Middle East, Indian subcontinent, and North and South East Asia. The airlines have also significantly developed their codeshare agreement to include a total of 49 routes, more than double the previous number. Subject to regulatory approval, Etihad Airways will place its 'EY' code on South African Airways' new Johannesburg-Abu Dhabi flights, in addition to 16 of the airline's other services from Johannesburg to key destinations across the African continent. In return, South African Airways will place its 'SA' code on 32 Etihad Airways routes beyond Abu Dhabi to a range of destinations worldwide. In addition, the airlines will enhance the alignment of their Etihad Guest and Voyager frequent flyer programs, with even more opportunities for members to earn and redeem miles. Benefits such as priority baggage handling, boarding and check-in, and airport lounge access across the airlines' networks will be provided based on membership tiers. Etihad Airways and South African Airways continue to explore areas for further cooperation, including joint sales and marketing programs and the coordination of procurement, facilities and airport operations. Together, these initiatives will optimise synergies between the airlines and provide guests with consistently high product and service levels at the most competitive price.

Government May Divest Stake In South African Airways
Dec 10 14
The government of South Africa is planning to privatize South African Airways SOC Limited. A stake in South African Airways may be one of the first on the block, with Etihad Airways P.J.S.C. given the option of buying a minority interest. According to Zizi Kodwa, party spokesman of African National Congress (ANC), the sale of a minority stake in South African Airways to Etihad would not constitute a big policy shift by the ANC. Zizi said, "When you implement policies, you can't be dogmatic. They must be informed by the conditions that exist at a particular time. There is nothing wrong if you take partners from outside to come and build capacity." Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) said that the government is moving in the wrong direction. Patrick Craven, spokesman for Cosatu said, "We haven't discussed the South African Airways issue specifically, but we will oppose any privatisation moves. It certainly needs to be more efficiently run, but we reject the argument that that can only happen if there is privatisation."
