Oh boy what a busy few months it has been and is going to be. This is an update of SAA VA’s current state and to inform you we are still active. Currently SAA VA has expanded its fleet welcoming the CRJ-200 SA Express to its fleet, along withe the B767 which will join SAA VA’s historic fleet. SAA VA has its own crewcenter with the addition of a new code share with WWVA (Wow Virtual). Sorry for craming all of this information, unoraganized, its just very busy currently with lots of stress happening.

This is one different livery compared to other A346 in the SAA fleet. Really a site of beauty!

Flying for the only African VA is quite epic. We fly to places in Africa most airlines don’t and the scenery is the best in the world too!

We also codeshare with other airlines and support Ethiopian Airlines under our banner.
