SAA Urge International Travellers to Arrive Early at Airports

25th Jun 2002

24 June, 2002, JOHANNESBURG: In order to avoid congestion and delays, and provide an efficient and streamlined service, South African Airways (SAA)
urge passengers traveling abroad to arrive three hours prior to their departure at all airports.

Some passengers traveling to the United States have been reporting for check-in and boarding only an hour before departure, resulting in congestion
and delays because stringent security measures implemented by the US Federal
Aviation Administration.

Check-in times were increased from three to four hours before a flight after the September 11th attack on the US. They were later reduced by an hour as a result of streamlined security
procedures. Domestic travelers are still required to check-in two hours before
