All South African Airways (SAA) flights to international destinations - - the United States, Europe and Asia—are operating as scheduled despite prospects for war in Iraq.
Bookings for SAA`s 39 single trips (78 return flights) per week to Europe, 18 trips (36 return) to Americas, 13 (26 return) flights and to Australasia are stable and there has been no cancellations.
Should passengers traveling to and from Europe and Australasia wish to cancel their tickets, normal cancellations conditions apply.
However, conditions for those traveling to and from the Middle East and the United States are different.
Tickets purchased between March 10 to March 31 2003 using a restricted fare - - the ones with cancellation fees and penalties - - may be changed without penalties anytime before March 31, 2003 for travel until December 31, 2003.
Customers may choose to change their destination, travel dates or class of service, subject to availability. All changes must be made no later than three days prior to the originally scheduled travel date and the original ticket value will be applied as a credit toward higher fares or where ticket taxes have increased.
We are busy with contingency plans in case we may have to reschedule, delay or cancel some flights. At the moment flights to these destinations will depart and return as scheduled. If there are any changes, SAA will notify passengers.
