South African Airways Promotes Southern Africa Tourism

South African Airways is launching a "Visit Southern Africa" program, which it hopes will boost more tourism to countries lying within southern Africa. The program will offer a value-added air and land packages to places such as South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, Victoria Falls and Zambia. The program is being done in conjunction with the Star Alliance, which South African Airways recently joined. SAA operates the only nonstop service to South Africa from Washington, D.C., and daily wide-body departures from New York to Johannesburg. The carrier selected Lion World Tours to operate the "Visit Southern Africa" vacation packages, which will include a full line of luxury itineraries, group and independent packages and programs that will appeal to both experienced and first-time travelers.
