South African Voyager has a new JourneyBlitz promotion, Hyatt expands in Africa

Posted on October 1, 2018 by in Travel Deals

– South African Airways Voyager is back with another JourneyBlitz promotion

These promotions have VERY competitive mileage requirements for flights operated by South African Airways (not any of the subsidiaries).

The caveat are the fuel surcharges that are typically high with South African (about $200-$500 per direction).

However some routes have minimal/ low fuel surcharges such as Sao Paulo, Hong Kong and Nairobi. Those are a good deal with this promotion.

Hyatt has found new franchisees in Africa – I’m especially excited about the Hyatt Regency in Addis Abeba

Algeria: Hyatt Regency Algiers Airport (expected to open in Q1 2019)
Ethiopia: Hyatt Regency Addis Ababa (expected to open Q4 2018)
Kenya: Hyatt Place Nairobi/Westlands and Hyatt House Nairobi/Westlands (expected to open in 2020)
Senegal: Hyatt Centric Dakar (expected to open in Q1 2019)
