South African Airways and TravPro Mobile have launched AfricaPRO, a new business-to-business online educational training platform for the travel trade in North America.

AfricaPRO is a chapter-based training programme with web, mobile tablet and smartphone applications that provide access to a range of product information to enhance travel advisers’ knowledge and selling capabilities on South African Airways.

The five chapter, fully immersive educational and enablement programme helps travel advisers learn more about SAA and the destinations the airline serves throughout Africa. Each chapter contains a blend of resources that includes product information, maps, shareable images, special offers and links to a full list of other websites, all built specifically to assist advisers with selling SAA and Africa with confidence,

The five chapters include:

  • An overview of Africa and the South African Airways product
  • How to Get There
  • Discover Southern Africa
  • Discover East & West Africa
  • South African Airways’ Travel Partner Support

After training is complete, the mobile AfricaPRO apps keep all the content and collateral for the advisers to enable them with their sales efforts. The AfricaPRO platform will be continually enhanced with the latest SAA product information and offerings.

Travel advisers who complete the AfricaPRO course between October 10 and December 31, will be eligible to win two round-trip economy class tickets on South African Airways from either New York-JFK or Washington-Dulles to Johannesburg or Cape Town, and four nights’ hotel accommodations.
