South African Airways (SAA) has introduced AfricaPro, an online educational training platform for the travel trade in North America.

AfricaPro is a five chapter, fully immersive educational and enablement program to help travel advisors learn more about SAA and the destinations the airline serves throughout Africa. Each chapter contains a blend of resources that includes product information, maps, shareable images, special offers and links to a full list of other critical websites all built specifically to assist advisors in selling South African Airways and Africa with confidence.

After travel agents have completed their training, the mobile AfricaPro app keeps all the content and collateral at the advisors' fingertips to better enable them with their sales efforts. The AfricaPro platform will be continually enhanced with the latest South African Airways product information and offerings.

SAA's partner on the project is TravPro Mobile, a provider of mobile learning and sales enablement platforms.

Travel advisors who complete the AfricaPro course by Dec. 31, will be eligible to win two roundtrip Economy Class tickets on South African Airways from either New York JFK or Washington Dulles to Johannesburg or Cape Town and four nights' hotel accommodations.
