South African Airways is again deploying the A350-900 on its international routes

South African Airways (SAA) is set to resume operations with the Airbus A350 as its flagship aircraft. The South African airline suspended services in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and underwent a restructuring process, which included the cancellation of several aircraft orders, including the Airbus A350.

However, SAA is currently preparing for a new launch, and plans to rely on the Airbus A350 as its primary long-haul aircraft. The company will receive four aircraft of this type, which it had already ordered.

The Airbus A350-900 is renowned for its fuel efficiency and low emissions, making it an ideal aircraft for airlines looking to reduce their carbon footprint. This feature makes it an excellent choice for SAA, which is committed to adopting more environmentally friendly practices.

In a press release, the national airline of South Africa announced that these aircraft will be configured in three classes and will have a capacity of 246 seats. They will also be equipped with an in-flight entertainment system, Wi-Fi and other amenities to enhance passengers’ travel experience.

South African Airways’ A350-900s will be deployed this summer on several international flights connecting its hubs in the country to the world’s major destinations, such as Sao Paulo in Brazil, Perth in Australia, Washington and New York in the United States. United States, Frankfurt in Germany and London in the United Kingdom.
