SAA, AWA sign codeshare agreement


2 min read

South African Airways (SAA) has announced the launch of a codeshare partnership with Africa World Airlines (AWA) effective 27 October 2019. 

The codeshare agreement will apply between Accra (ACC) – Kumasi (KMS), Accra – Lagos (LOS) and Accra – Abuja (ABV). The partnership is unilateral at the moment, with SAA marketing on the services of AWA as the operating carrier. SAA customers will be able to travel on the routes on one SAA ticket where travel includes Johannesburg.

We are planning more destinations in the near future once we get the necessary approvals.

SAA and AWA currently have an interline agreement established in 2018 and it provides seamless connections for our customers to/from Abuja, Lagos, Monrovia, Freetown, Kumasi, Tamale, Wa and Takoradi over Accra, to SAA mainline flights to/from Johannesburg and Washington.

The establishment of the codeshare agreement will take the relationship to greater heights as it enables a smooth travel experience and more travel options for customers. Members of SAA’s frequent flyer programme Voyager, will have the opportunity to earn frequent flyer mileage on the codeshare flights.

Growing the partnership with AWA forms part of SAA’s strategic approach of seeking partnerships with other airlines and collaborations in Africa. Currently, SAA has 24 partnerships with airlines across the globe, which offer customers access to the destinations we do not serve ourselves – and we are growing partnerships with other airlines and strengthening collaborations.             

The codeshare schedule will be as follows:
