Following months of extensive refurbishment, patrons travelling to local destinations will now be able to enjoy a new contemporary and stylish South African Airways (SAA) lounge — called the VIA lounge — in the domestic departure area of OR Tambo International Airport.

“The new facility has been appropriately named VIA lounge, as the lounges are a transition point for travellers for they travel via the airport to the destination of their choice”, says Sylvain Bosc, SAA Chief Commercial Officer.

The lounge design was done by Switch, an award winning Johannesburg-based agency. The fabric and texture create a link between the platinum and business lounge experience, while the clever geographic naming device allows a celebration of the city through the visual language and local food expertly served by the VIA lounge crew.

“The lounge will offer a fantastic pre-departure experience displayed through warm hospitality that has become synonymous with the SAA brand”, Bosc added.

SAA business class, Voyager Lifetime Platinum, Platinum, Gold and Silver members, SAA Voyager/Nedbank Premium Credit Card, Star Alliance Gold members and Investec Private Bank Account card holders have access to the lounge.

Operating hours for the lounge are 04h30 until 21h00 (weekdays) and 05h00 – 21h00 (weekends).

The GSA for South African Airways in Greece is Discover the World Greece & Cyprus.
