“As the leading airline in Africa, South African Airways now offers convenient schedules and great fares from New York and Washington, DC to the East Africa destinations of Nairobi and Dar es Salaam for both business and leisure travellers, said Todd Neuman, executive vice president, North America, for South African Airways. “This is the perfect opportunity for travellers who already love these destinations and those whom have yet to discover them to plan a vacation and experience the majestic beauty of both destinations.”
Dr. Aloyce K. Nzuki, Managing Director, Tanzania Tourist Board, welcomed SAA's promotional fare to Tanzania from the New York and Washington DC gateways. "This initiative will be a further boost to Tanzania Tourist Board's push in the US market, which is one of our major source markets worldwide. The flight to Dar es Salaam enables tourists to also discover the less known gems of the southern circuit like Ruaha National Park, the second largest in Africa and the Selous Game Reserve, the largest in the world."
