South African Airways (SAA) is the national airline of South Africa. Founded in 1934, the Star Alliance member is also the largest airline of South Africa.

The official app of South African Airways, FlySAA, landed on Windows Phone Store a couple of weeks back. While the app packs in most features expected from an airlines app, oddly, you can’t make flight bookings through the app.

You can, however, check out the timetable for all upcoming SAA flights and search by the departure and destination cities. The app allows you to review your booking information and check-in to your flight online. You can also track a specific flight by checking the updated flight status by route or by flight number. The app also provides the ability to track the status of your checked-in baggage or SAA Cargo shipment.


The app features useful information like getting there, shopping, and nightlife for several South African Airways destinations. These featured guides serve as quick travel guides if you are headed to one of these cities, even if you’re not flying SAA.

The app also allows Voyager members to access their account information and miles summary. Voyager is the frequent flyer program of the South African Airways.

Download the free FlySAA app for Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store. If you are flying from or to South Africa, you might want to check it out. The app has a neat, modern user interface, and offers a great experience apart from the missing ability to make flight bookings.
