South Africa: SAA, Jetblue Airways Introduce Washington DC Codeshare

Pretoria — South African Airways (SAA) and JetBlue Airways have introduced code share operations on SAA's flights between Washington, DC-Dulles Airport and Accra, Ghana.

The code share is effective immediately, said the national carrier, in a statement, on Thursday.

JetBlue is now placing its "B6" code on SAA-operated flights between Washington, DC-Dulles Airport and Accra, Ghana.

Customers purchasing a codeshare itinerary will benefit from having a single ticket combining JetBlue and SAA-operated flights, as well as the convenience of one-stop check-in and baggage transfer on their day of travel.

"SAA offers nonstop service between Washington, DC Dulles Airport and Accra, Ghana, four days per week aboard modern state-of-the-art wide-body Airbus A330 and A340 aircraft."

At the Washington, DC Dulles Airport - both SAA and JetBlue are co-located on Concourse "B", which allows for fast and convenient connections for customers.

"SAA welcomes the addition of the JetBlue code share on SAA-operated flights to/from Accra, which will enhance the award-winning service that both airlines can offer the business and leisure customers, as well as, the Ghanaian diaspora communities in the US," said Marc Cavaliere, executive vice president, the Americas for South African Airways.

Cavaliere said the new code share flights on the Washington, DC-Accra route is further expansion to the successful code share services that SAA and JetBlue previously introduced to Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and East London in South Africa and Dakar, Senegal in West Africa.
