Business Class

Our Long-haul Flights

Turning left when you step onboard is always a treat and whether you’re a seasoned traveller or a first-timer, our Business Class cabin is sure to impress. We pull out all the stops to treat Business Class customers to an unforgettable journey. You’ll be welcomed onboard with a refreshing drink and given an amenity bag stocked with travel necessities and indulgent cosmetics.

Our exquisite à la carte menu, proudly South African cheese board and skillfully selected wine list will give you a high-class dining experience.

We know you might need to catch up on you work, so your spacious seating area can also become your office on-the-move. Each seat has its own power portal so you can keep your laptop charged while you work and recharge your phone while you fly.

When you’re ready to sleep, you’ll love our award-winning flatbed seats with a 5-star sleep rating from Skytrax. They’re made from the finest leather and fabric and lie completely flat at 180° for a good night’s rest under a soft duvet with luxuriously large pillows and a padded seat cover which provides extra comfort. Noise cancellation headsets help block out the cabin noise allowing you to watch your favourite movie uninterrupted.

Our Short-Haul Flights

From the moment you board, our thoughtfully designed Business Class experience will make your journey as comfortable as possible. An easily adjustable headrest with adaptable ears, ample stowage space, generous legroom with leg rests and a handy coat hook welcome you as you settle in.

Each Business Class seat also has its own USB and laptop charging point, so your devices are always powered and ready to use.

On Board Menus

On a long-haul flight, we aim to make our meals a highlight of the journey. That’s why two of South Africa’s most sought-after chefs, Reuben Riffel and Benny Masekwameng, have come onboard to create signature dishes that could be served with pride in any top restaurant.

Reuben now runs his own restaurant in Franschhoek as well as running a signature restaurant in Cape Town’s One and Only Hotel. Now you too can taste his delicious treats without waiting for a table reservation.

Working with Benny is an absolute treat. The Tsogo Sun celebrity chef and a popular judge on MasterChef South Africa has added an inspiring and tantalising touch to our menus.

From starters to desserts, each dish has been carefully designed for its taste, texture and travelling star qualities. We always have a vegetarian option available too. Award-winning South African wines and Méthode Cap Classique bubbly has been specially selected to pair with our chefs’ designer dishes.



Economy Class

Our Economy Class seats offer extra space and generous legroom for your travelling comfort. To make your flight more enjoyable, Economy Class customers are offered a handy amenity kit with socks, eyeshades and a toothbrush and toothpaste.

At SAA, we believe that travelling should be a pleasure for the whole family, so parents are welcome to pre-order meals for children and babies and pre-book a baby bassinet if necessary. We also offer a fun activity pack for kids and our inflight entertainment system has channels specially designed to keep our little travellers amused for hours. If you are travelling with a wheelchair or small children, you’re welcome to use the larger lavatory in the middle of Economy Class, thoughtfully designed at double the size of ordinary lavatories and fitted with a large baby-changing table.
