About South African Airways (IATA Code: SA )

Flag Carrier Airline of South Africa

Founded in February 1934, South African Airways after acquisition of Union Airways by South African government. It was initially overseen and controlled by South African Railways and Harbors Administration. The airline was known by its Afrikaans name, Suid-Afrikaanse Lugdiens (SAL), which has been dropped by airline. In 1997, the airline changed its name, aircraft livery and image, and introduced online ticketing services. In 2006, the airline split from Transnet, its parent company, to operate as an independent airline. The airline owns Mango, a low-cost domestic airline, and has established links with South African Express and Airlink. It is member of Star Alliance.
