SAA flies nonstop to JFK


South African Airways resumed a nonstop service on its daily flight from Johannesburg (South Africa) to New York-John F. Kennedy International Airport (U.S.A.) on 7 March.  

While SAA’s daily flight from New York-JFK to Johannesburg has operated on a nonstop basis for several years, the return flight was making a one-hour en-route stop in Dakar (Senegal) during the low season winter months. Due to growing popularity, however, this route will once again operate nonstop in both directions on a year-round basis.

The resumption of the nonstop service on the northbound flight from Johannesburg to New York-JFK reduces the overall travel time on the route by nearly 90 minutes.
