SA’s national carrier South African Airways is making it possible for children to experience the wonders of flying and see South Africa this festive season. 


The airline currently has a promotion offering free flights for children aged 2 to 11 years old, when flying with an adult.  

A maximum of two children may travel with one adult on SAA’s flights. Only regulatory taxes and levies will have to be paid for each child.

This promotion is only valid for SAA’s flights to Cape Town and Durban. This is a fantastic opportunity for families to explore South Africa and make lasting memories.

The offer is valid until midnight on 1 December so there are just hours remaining for you to snap up this unbeatable offer. 

The offer is valid for flights from 1 December 2023 until 31 January 2024.


The restarted airline has recently relaunched intercontinental flights. SA’s flag carrier flies from both Johannesburg and Cape Town to Sao Paulo in Brazil.  

SAA is also trying to rebuild its domestic route network. The carrier currently operates scheduled flights between Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.

SAA is scheduled to relaunch flights to Gqeberha on 13 December. Daily flights will be operated from Johannesburg to the Windy City during the peak summer season.

The airline has recently leased two additional aircraft, enabling it to scale up its flight schedule and to add additional destinations. The Gqeberha route will be operated as a seasonal service, from 13 December 2023 to 31 March 2024.

SAA is offering promotional fares of R 713 per way on the route, for tickets purchased before 27 December.  However, SAA’s free flights for children promotion does not apply to its flights to Gqeberha.
