South African Airways (SAA) has said that it had signed a partnership deal with Emirates airline on more business cooperation.
South African Airways (SAA) said in Johannesburg that the partnership would see the two firms expand an existing codeshare agreement.
A codeshare agreement, also known as codeshare, is a business arrangement, common in the aviation industry.
It is an arrangement in which two or more airlines publish and market a flight under their own airline designator and flight number, as part of their published timetable or schedule.
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has been at pains to stabilise struggling state-run firms like SAA, which has not generated a profit since 2011.
