South African Airways and Hawaiian Airlines have established a new interline agreement that provides new and convenient flight options on both SAA and Hawaiian passengers flying between the Hawaiian Islands and Southern Africa. Travelers can now purchase a single itinerary for trips on flights of both carriers in one transaction and enjoy convenient connections via New York-John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) between Hawaiian Airlines’ neighbor island network in Hawaii and over 75 destinations in Africa served by SAA. JFK airport is a primary gateway for SAA in North America, with the only daily nonstop service to South Africa.
Hawaii to South Africa flights depart from Honolulu on Hawaiian Airlines at 3:10 p.m. and arrive in New York at 6:55 a.m. the following day. At 11:15 a.m., passengers depart on a South African Airways’ flight to Johannesburg, arriving at 8:05 a.m. The return flight departs Johannesburg at 9 p.m., arriving in New York at 6:40 a.m. the following day. The connecting flight to Honolulu departs JFK at 10 a.m. and arrives at 3:05 p.m.
In addition to giving passengers the ability to travel on one single electronic ticket, this new partnership also allows for interline baggage transfer upon check-in with either SAA or Hawaiian Airlines in the U.S. or Southern Africa. For more information, visit (800) 722-9675 or flysaa.com.
