SAA 777s for 747s

Mon Feb 01, 1999 10:37 pm

Instead of taking delivery of 7 777s, SAA has chosen to take delivery of two more 747-400s. These aircraft will be flying primarily to London because they are increasing the frequency between Johannesburg and London.

The reason why the are increasing flights to South Africa is because they SIA has a new alliance with South African Airways to flights from Singapore to Johannesburg. Also they are increasing flights to Europe and North America because of the Asian economic crisis.
