South African Airways reintroduces direct flights to Perth

South African Airways will reintroduce direct flights from Johannesburg to Perth from 28 April, 2023.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, South African Airways was the only carrier offering direct flights to Western Australia, but these services were put on hold in 2020 as the airline industry ground to a halt when lockdowns were introduced.

“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 being visiting family and friends,” says South African Airways CEO Professor John Lamola.

The airline will offer three flights a week, with departures from Johannesburg being on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

Flights from Perth will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
