JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, 2018-Sep-14 — /Travel PR News/ — Leading carrier in the Sub-Saharan Africa region, South African Airways (SAA), is excited to announce a brand new partnership for SAA Voyager, Africa’s most popular frequent flyer loyalty programme with NetFlorist, South Africa’s largest floral gifting service.
Voyager members will now be able to use their SAA Voyager Miles to pay for that next bunch of flowers, quirky personalised gift or box of chocolates off the e-commerce platform. In addition to this, the first five SAA Voyager members who spend their miles at NetFlorist, will each win a R500 gift voucher to spend on their next NetFlorist purchase.
With Spring officially here, know that, for as little as 5 000 Voyager miles (equivalent to R200), members can surprise loved ones with flower arrangements, bespoke jewellery, scrumptious hampers, personalised gifts including gowns and wine, or even cupcake treats from the NetFlorist Bakery.
“We welcome NetFlorist as a Voyager partner. We continue to look for opportunities that will bring more value to our customers and improve on our offering,” says Tlali Tlali, SAA Spokesperson.
SAA Voyager is Africa’s first revenue based airline loyalty programme, which offers members miles based on the ticket price purchased, rather than the distance travelled. The programme also allows members to spend miles on any available ticket price for flights operated by SAA. With more than 67 partnerships, including the Star Alliance global network, the programme gives members access to more than 1 300 destinations in 190 countries.
Everybody loves to travel and appreciates a surprise gift, especially when it comes from NetFlorist’s massive collection – so there is all the reason to join and share the love. Voyager members earn one Voyager Mile for every R1.60 spent on any SAA operated flight, so the only thing left to do is plan what to spend those miles on next! With SAA Voyager, your currency is miles and your rewards, exceptional.
