South African Airways starts nonstop New York-Johannesburg service


Effective May 1, 2011, South African Airways will offer round-trip nonstop service, between New York (JFK) and Johannesburg, South Africa. The new nonstop service on the northbound flight will eliminate the stop in Dakar, Senegal and reduce the overall flying time by more than 90 minutes.

Now more then ever, South African Airways will have the most convenient service to/from South Africa and over 40 destinations on the African continent for business and leisure travelers. With SAA’s unrivalled African network, same-day flight connections are available via our JNB hub on South African Airways and our regional partners, South African Airways Express and South African Airlink to dozens of destinations throughout South Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, East Africa and Africa’s Indian Ocean Islands.

Convenient connections to/from SAA flights at New York (JFK) are also available via our Star Alliance code-share partner, United Airlines and interline partners, JetBlue Airways and Virgin America from over 60 cities throughout the U.S. and Caribbean.
