South African Airways (SAA) has released a great range of special Earlybird fares for travel to South Africa starting at $1741 return for travel in late 2009 and most of 2010.
On sale from today, the fares offer real value for money and make travelling to South Africa more affordable than ever before, according to Thevan Krishna, SAA’s Head of Australasia.
“These special return airfares to Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town start at $1741 from Perth, $1795 from Adelaide and $1961 from the East Coast, include all taxes and offer terrific value,” Thevan said.
“Tickets are on sale from today until 30 November. Available travel dates are from 21 October to 30 November, 2009, 16 January to 31 March and 1 August to 30 November, 2010,” he said.
“People can travel from any city in Australia to Johannesburg, Cape Town or Durban with direct connections to other centres in South Africa and other African cities using our extensive network,” Thevan said.
“People wanting to book now can consult their travel agent or buy direct online.”
Thevan said the strong Australian dollar and good value accommodation deals means an African holiday is now an affordable option for travellers wanting a completely different experience.
“Our Earlybird fares this year offer fantastic value-for-money to recreational, VFR and business travellers, whether people want to stay in South Africa or connect to our extensive African network or onto Europe, the UK, US or South America,” Thevan said.
