Travelling with friends and family made easy

No dream can come true without hard work and given the demands of planning and executing group travel, it’s easy to see a future of to-do lists for the organizer.

At SAA we understand that coordinating the logistics can be traumatic and stressful. As anyone who has organised, or tried to organise, a large group of travellers knows, it can be daunting.

If you are travelling with 10 or more in a group, SAA’s experienced Group Sales specialists can help make your journey one to remember. We assist in making group travel more affordable and free up your time by assisting with the booking and onward connecting flights, as well as seating, meals and any other small request you may have.

There can be incredible benefits to travel with family or with a group of friends – treasured moments chatting late into the night, playing competitive board games and sharing dreams of destinations that matter to you.

Travelling with a group offers you the chance to just relax and be present in the moment. It’s an opportunity to enjoy time with friends and family, free of the stress that we cram into our everyday lives. Group travel allows you the chance to just be accepted and be understood without explanation.

That’s the fun part.

At South African Airways we make it easy to plan that family getaway or to gather a group of friends to watch your favourite team in their home stadium.
