Johannesburg - Customers already holding ticketed reservations on South Africa Airways (SAA) direct services between Johannesburg and Buenos Aires, due to be cancelled on 28 march 2014, will be re-accommodated, the airline said. SAA said affected travellers would be reaccommodate via SAA’s São Paulo flights in line with the IATA conditions of carriage.SAA currently operates 11 weekly flights to São Paulo, Brazil - from where it says passengers will be able to connect to various destinations in Argentina. “Before discontinuing any route, SAA takes into account a number of factors that include but are not limited to the possible consequences of stopping flights, with due consideration given to how a particular market can still be served,” said Monwabisi Kalawe, SAA CEO. “Declining passenger volumes and the current economic conditions such as the depreciation of the South African currency against the US Dollar by more than 20% over the last 12 months, and high fuel costs, have played an important role in our decision to rationalise SAA’s long haul network,” added Kalawe. In its effort to continue offering proper connectivity in the region, SAA has implemented agreements with fellow Star Alliance partners and other major airlines operating between São Paulo and Buenos Aires, as well as to and from other key South American destinations.
