The Avios Travel Rewards Programme in South Africa is closing…sigh!

Goodbyes are never easy and it’s with a heavy heart that we say farewell to the Avios Travel Rewards Programme, as they will be closing in South Africa.

We want to make sure that you don’t miss out before they close and therefore please note the following:

Collecting Avios

You’ll continue to collect your Avios as you do today and be able to claim for missing Avios up until 31 March 2019.


Spending Avios

Converting Avios into Travel Bank credit, which can then be used as payment towards any kulula flight, will remain as is up until 31 May 2019. It’s important to note that all Avios conversions need to take place before or on 31 May 2019, as you will no longer be able to convert Avios into Travel Bank for kulula flights after this date.

Avios points

Don’t stress if you are not sure when you’ll be travelling, once you’ve converted your Avios into Travel Bank credit, you can use the credit anytime in the future, even after 31 May 2019.
