What is Southern Virtual Alliance?
Due to a lack of a decent VA on in the Southern Africa region and the lack of pilots that fly this region, we at SVA have decided to join forces with the VA’s that are currently operating within the region. Our goal is to help the VA’s to become financially viable. VA’s like Virtual Airlines Mozambique do not necessarily attract pilots due to the lack of equipment in the fleet and the lack of routes.
By combining forces with VA’s like South African Virtual (SAA, SA Airlink, SA Express, Mango, Comair South Africa and FlySafair) we can now, through codeshare agreements, help smaller VA’s to be profitable. With the codeshare agreements you as pilot also get access to a much larger variety in the different fleets.
SAV is in the process of inviting another VA within Southern Africa to join the Alliance.
SAV’s goal is to cover the following regions with their respective Airlines:
- SAA (including SAA Express & Airlink) (Unavailable)
- Mango (Unavailable)
- Kulula (Unavailable)
- Safair (Unavailable)
- Air Austral
- Air Botswana
- Air Madagascar
- Air Mauritius
- Air Mozambique (Unavailable)
- Air Namibia
- Air Seychelles
- Air Zimbabwe
- Kenya Airways (Unavailable)
All these airlines are ran and managed separately but falls under the SVA umbrella, meaning pilots can fly code share flight for any of these airlines. All VA”s use the same webpage template, as not to gain unfair advantage by airlines that can afford to build big wow websites, and will also the same acars system with the same settings for all VA’s. VA’s are responsible for their own hosting space and their own VA subscription. SVA will help build the crew center database for each VA as to standardise throughout the Alliance. SVA can also help with suggestions for hosting space and what the requirements are.
If any of you are interested in opening any of these VA’s listed that are still available. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
