South African Airways and Lufthansa Airlines have renewed their codeshare agreement, according to a statement released by the airlines.

The agreement allows passengers to book travel between South Africa and Europe on a single ticket, including flights between Johannesburg and Frankfurt, plus connecting flights to other European destinations operated by Lufthansa.

SWISS to Join Codeshare Agreement 

Once regulatory approval is granted, Swiss Airlines, which belongs to the Lufthansa Group, will join the codeshare agreement. “We are thrilled to resume our codeshare agreement with the Lufthansa and soon with Swiss airlines, who are both members of STAR Alliance, the largest Alliance amongst airlines,” said Tebogo Tsimane, SAA Chief Commercial Officer, in the statement. “It is a key step in reconnecting our travellers from around the continent to a wider range of international destinations through their SAA ticket and earn Voyager miles.”


The Lufthansa Group offers more than 35 weekly connections from South Africa to their hubs in Europe.
