Earn triple SAA Voyager miles when you fly Business Class to South Africa

If your business travel will see you in Southern Africa over the next few months, South African Airways has launched an interesting ‘triple miles’ offer for UK members of its Voyager loyalty scheme.

‘Southern Africa’ is defined as South Africa (Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, East London & Port Elizabeth), Namibia (Windhoek), Mozambique (Maputo), Zimbabwe (Harare & Victoria Falls), Zambia (Livingstone & Lusaka), Angola (Luanda), Malawi (Lilongwe & Blantyre).

Full details can be found on the SAA website here.


There are a few rules:

the offer only applies to Business Class flights (booking class C, J, D, Z)

you must book between 8th November 2016 and 9th December 2016 and fly between 8th November 2016 and 31 March 2017

you MUST register in advance at this page of the SAA website

all flights must start and end in London and must be purchased and ticketed in the UK

SAA business class is 2 x 2 x 2 (see photo above) and the airlines flies an A330 and A340 out of London on its two daily services from Heathrow Terminal 2.


South African Airways is a member of Star Alliance so you can redeem your triple miles across any of their 28 member airlines including Lufthansa, Austrian, Swiss, United, Air Canada etc.  If you are not already a member of Voyager you can sign up at the same time as you register.

  1. Just be aware that the Voyager FFP is pretty rubbish, though. Miles are earned based on spend and miles for SA redemptions are also based on the cost of the ticket. Plus miles expire after 3 years.

    I would think long and hard before deciding to join Voyager based on this offer…
