Marriott Rewards, Marriott International’s award-winning loyalty program, announced that members can now earn South African Airways (SAA) Voyager miles for stays at more than 4,000 Marriott hotels across 16 distinctive global brands. As part of this new partnership, Marriott Rewards members can now also redeem points for SAA Voyager miles.

“Providing our members with even more flexibility to fuel their journey of exploration is part of our mission at Marriott Rewards,” said Kevin McCarthy, Vice President of Loyalty Member Experience at Marriott International. “Through our partnership with South African Airways — our 41st airline partner — our 54 million members will have the freedom to enjoy the benefits of loyalty in ways that are most meaningful to them — whether earning miles during their stays, or using points to get the miles they need to travel even sooner.”

“We are excited to launch this partnership with Marriott Rewards,” said Suretha Cruse, SAA Executive, Customer Loyalty. “Marriott Rewards includes hotels worldwide, most recently adding Protea Hotels, one of the leading African hotel groups, to the program. We are confident that this new partnership will really benefit our members.”
