South African Airways (SAA) has announced new low fares to select destinations throughout Africa for the spring and late-summer travel seasons.  Sale fares start at $939 roundtrip from Washington Dulles Airport to Accra, Ghana, and from New York JFK to Johannesburg, starting at $1,149 roundtrip.  Fares are available for purchase through March 31 for travel from April 1 to May 31 and Aug. 11 to Sept. 12; restrictions apply.

Flyers will benefit from having a single ticket combining JetBlue and SAA-operated flights as well as the conveniences of one-stop check-in and baggage transfer. JetBlue’s TrueBlue members have the opportunity to earn TrueBlue points on SAA’s entire global network.

The airline also has launched a codeshare agreement with JetBlue Airways on flights between Washington Dulles and Accra, Ghana.

Marc Cavaliere, executive vice president, the Americas for South African Airways, said: “The new codeshare flights on the Washington-Accra route is further expansion to the successful codeshare services that SAA and JetBlue previously introduced to Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and East London in South Africa and Dakar, Senegal, in West Africa.”
