SAA has announced a new interline partnership with Alaska Airlines, which will provide new flight options for passengers of both airlines travelling between North America and Africa.

Travellers can now purchase a single itinerary on flights of both carriers in a single transaction, with connections via New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Washington-Dulles International Airport, between Alaska Airlines’ North American network and over 75 destinations in Africa served by SAA and its regional partners.

The two airlines will now offer more options for travel between Africa and the US West Coast markets including Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland.

Travel will now be possible through a single electronic ticket, with interline baggage transfer upon check-in with either SAA or Alaska Airlines in the US and Africa.
