Cape Town - South African Airways on Friday released a statement urging members of its frequent flyer programme, Voyager, to donate miles that will soon expire to charity.
SAA said some members' miles were due to expire on March 31 and encouraged people to act in time to redeem them as awards or to donate them to a good cause.
Suretha Cruse, SAA executive for customer loyalty, said members could donate a minimum of 6 000 miles to their choice of three charities supported by SAA: the Reach For A Dream Foundation, Wings and Wishes, and the World Wide Fund For Nature.
The Reach for a Dream Foundation uses airmiles to fly children with life-threatening illnesses and family members to the children's dream destinations, and Wings and Wishes uses the miles to transport seriously ill children to hospitals to receive urgent medical treatment.
Miles donated to the World Wide Fund For Nature allow its staff to be more active in projects such as fighting rhino poaching and promoting better management of water resources in South Africa.
