South African Airways and LATAM are codeshared on the Johannesburg-Guarulhos route.
The two airlines recently announced a codeshare agreement that will connect South Africa and Brazil with three weekly flights between Johannesburg and Guarulhos. This partnership aims to improve connectivity for travelers between the two countries.
As part of the agreement, South African Airways will place its “SA” flight code on LATAM flights between Johannesburg and Guarulhos. This means that passengers who book a flight with SAA will now have the possibility of uninterrupted travel to Brazil, since they will now be able to connect on LATAM flights without the need to make reservations and buy tickets separately. .
The flights will be operated by LATAM using its Boeing 787-8s, providing passengers with a comfortable and modern travel experience. With three weekly flights scheduled on Saturdays, Mondays and Thursdays at 5:25 p.m., travelers will enjoy greater flexibility in planning their trip and better options for connecting to other destinations in Brazil and South America.
For its part, SAA will serve three flights a week between OR Tambo International Airport and Guarulhos International Airport, ensuring departures on Sundays, Tuesdays and Fridays at 12:50 p.m.
This codeshare agreement is beneficial to both South African Airways and LATAM Airlines. It allows SAA to expand its network and offer its customers more options to travel to Brazil, a popular destination for tourists and business people. On the other hand, the Brazilian operator will benefit from an increase in passenger traffic, since passengers traveling with SAA will now have a seamless connection to Brazil and other South American countries.
