SAA Strike – What To Do?

Category : SAA

What you need to do if affected by the potential SAA strike

As you may be aware, two South African Airways unions have served SAA (“the Company”) with a notice of their intention to strike commencing on 15 November 2019. Although negotiations are continuing to try and avert the strike, the Company has taken a decision to suspend all operations on 15 and 16 November 2019. Your flight MAY be affected, but we are here to help you.

Friday 15 & Saturday 16 November 2019

The cancellations only affect flights operated by SAA. All flights operated on partner airlines (Mango, SA Express, Airlink and all codeshare partners) will not be affected. Please see list of flights that are still operational below.


Travelstart our booking agent will be able to help you:

  • Rebook if your Travelstart booking reference starts with ZA – You may rebook your flight onto another South African Airways flight for any flight until 31 October 2020 at no extra charge and subject to availability in the same booking class.
  • Issue a full ticket refund (including taxes) to the original form of payment, if you no longer wish to travel.

Please contact our Customer Service Teams using the above-listed contact information and we will do our best to assist you as quickly as possible.

Information will be updated on the Flight Status menu tab, as well as through social media and the SAA website.

Travelstart has been in contact with the Airline and although every effort has been made to ensure all information is accurate we encourage all Customers who are scheduled to travel during the expected strike period to visit the websites listed above for the most up to date information relating to flight schedules.
