South African Airways (SAA) has teamed up with Ecobank Ghana to launch the first co-branded credit card in Ghana.

Customers would be provided two credit options, which include the Gold and Platinum MasterCard Credits Cards.

Both the cards will incorporate a range of exclusive benefits such as lounge access, excess baggage allowance, bonus Miles and Premium check-in, among others.

SAA Voyager members and Ecobank customers applying for the payment card would get the opportunity to earn SAA Voyager Miles for everyday purchases by swiping their credit cards while buying goods or services.

The earned Miles could be used to fly with SAA, Star Alliance partners as well as other Airline partnerships.
