Non-Stop daytime flight from New York (JFK) to Johannesburg (JNB) with South African Airways (SAA)

Good news from Fort Lauderdale, Fla today: South African Airways announced that it will operate a new non-stop service from New York JFK to Johannesburg beginning May 1, 2009. Flight SA204 will now depart at 11:35AM and arrive in Johannesburg at 8:45AM the following day. This opens up a host of connections taking more travelers to more of Africa through SAA’s Johannesburg hub.

Roar Africa is excited about this addition as it will benefit both business and leisure travelers. It means we can ensure you are enjoying a cocktail on safari or a swim at the beach at one of many southern Africa destinations on the day of arrival. Same-day connections will take you to Cape Town, Durban, Indian Ocean islands, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and many other destinations in some cases by mid-day.

The schedule change has also been hailed as wonderful news by other SAA travel and business partners from the US and from other African destinations already served by SAA.

South African Airways features the only nonstop service from the U.S. to South Africa with daily departures from Washington, D.C. (until April 30th, with a stop in Dakar commencing May 1), and daily direct service from New York (operating non stop effective May 1). While SA204 will operate non stop to Johannesburg, South Africa, flight SA203 returning from Johannesburg to New York will continue to make a brief stop in Dakar, Senegal, and will continue to depart from Johannesburg at 7:05PM arriving into JFK at 7:40AM the following morning.

Travelers in premium class enjoy 180° fully flat-bed seats, and in economy class enjoy the most legroom versus competitors. Every seat on board offers an individual on-demand entertainment system, plush pillow, warm blanket and amenity kit. SAA’s unrivaled network makes the airline the “gateway to Africa.”
