South African Airways to Resume Nonstop Flights from Johannesburg to New York
South African Airways announced changes to its schedule for nonstop flights from Johannesburg to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. Starting March 9, the airline will resume nonstop service on this route.
The nonstop service had been halted during the winter season and a refueling stop in Dakar, Senegal was added. South African attributed the change to lower demand.
The airline’s flights from New York to Johannesburg have, however, been operating without any stops.
When the nonstop flights from Johannesburg resume in March, flights from the South African city will depart at 8:25 p.m. and arrive in New York at 6:40 a.m. the following day. South African’s flights from New York to Johannesburg will continue to depart at 11:15 a.m. and arrive in Johannesburg at 8:00 a.m. the next day.
South African had originally planned to resume nonstop service on this route on March 28, but decided to make the change earlier.
