Singapore Airlines Increases Johannesburg Flights to 10 per week in July & August

Two business class saver award seats have been loaded on this excellent value redemption route almost every day in July and August.

Johannesburg (South African Tourism)
Singapore Airlines is increasing flights on their Johannesburg route during July and August 2018, adding 3 flights per week for a total of 10 connections to the largest city in South Africa.

The additional flights come on the back of a recent announcement that the existing daily Johannesburg flight will continue to Cape Town each day from March 2018, instead of only four times weekly.

These 3 new flights, however, will not continue to Cape Town. They will operate on Wednesdays, Friday and Sundays with a different schedule to the existing flights; daytime service is now offered on the Singapore to Johannesburg leg with a lunchtime departure landing into South Africa the early evening.

On the return sector flights leave Johannesburg in the evening, touching down in Singapore at lunchtime the following day.

The additional flights will be served by the Airbus A350, in common with SIAs other flights to Johannesburg.

SQ A350
SIA will use the Airbus A350 to operate these extra services.


Additional services are highlighted in yellow in the following table.

From 1st July 2018 to 31st August 2018
