Countdown to 2010 FIFA World Cup Now 100 Days


South African Airways has begun the 100-day countdown as it continues to prepare to welcome the world to South Africa for the FIFA World Cup, which begins June 11. For fans, it's not too late to purchase seats on flights to the event, as there are still seats available.

"Fans who have not booked their plane tickets should not despair, as there are still seats to be purchased for travel during the tournament," said Marc Cavaliere, executive vice president of North America for South African Airways." But they should take action and book soon, as the excitement continues to build and seats will be snapped up."

South African Airways has a specially-created corporate division in place dedicated to ensure that fans have the most comfortable and convenient service to and between the World Cup matches, including a round-the-clock domestic African flight schedule that will make it easy to fly to and from matches in the different cities. This schedule will complement SAA's flight schedule throughout Southern Africa that connects with the airline's daily flights from New York and Washington, D.C. In addition, all South African Airways flights in Johannesburg depart from the new Terminal B, providing for  timely flight connections through a modern terminal packed with shopping, dining and relaxation options. A new lounge will provide Premium Business Class passengers with a luxurious haven in which to catch up on work, grab a bite to eat, or freshen up with revitalizing rainfall showers.
