Big news for safari enthusiasts: South African Airways is set to resume its non-stop Perth-to-Johannesburg flight services from 28 April 2024.

South African Airways (SAA) has announced the recommencement of its direct flight service between Johannesburg and Perth for the first time since before the pandemic. From 28 April 2024, the restored service will operate three times weekly on the Airbus A340-300, creating 78,936 seats annually. The service will depart on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from Perth.

The flagship carrier of South Africa offers a vital link between the two continents, making wildlife safaris more accessible than ever. The route also opens up South America to Australian travellers, with connecting flights to São Paulo, Brazil available.

Professor John Lamola, CEO of SAA, said, “Besides the global interconnectivity potential of this route, Perth has long been a favoured destination for South African and Australian travellers, with approximately 80 per cent of our target market visiting family and friends."

The recommencement of the route provides an easier and direct passage for both leisure and business travellers, promoting trade and cultural exchange between South Africa and Australia."

With its close proximity to Pilanesberg National Park and Kruger National Park, Johannesburg is a gateway to the world of safaris and game drives.
