I have an SAA press document dated 1996. Unfortunalty this document doesn't give the routes, but only the international destinations.
Their website doesn't give any route map either.

Could anyone help me with the routes, as I believe all destinations aren't non-stop from CPT or JNB?

SAA - PROFILE 1996/7

United States

Latin America




Middle East

South Africa

Rest of Africa
MPM, HRE, LLW, MRU, BLZ, LUn, VFA, BUQ, WHD, NBO, ACC, ABH, SID (stop-over for MIA, now for FLL)

Now MIA has been replaced by FLL and ATL. What else has changed and what destinations are connected on the same routes please?

I believe that SAA has meanwhile ceased operations to DUS, AMS and CDG.

Also i dont think they fly to MUC anymore. I actually was wrong about CDG. Its now served twice a week with one stop.

Here is a link to a somewhat outdated SAA route map:

Even the route map on the above link is not correct. SAA no longer serves MIA (now ATL and FLL) and the route from Perth to Sydney no longer exists (soon or already). They will code-share with QF non-stop from JNB to SYD. No SAA LHR flights stop in ZRH - all go nonstop to either CPT or JNB.

North America

Now ATL, FLL and JFK (as stated aboce).


DUS, MUC and AMS have been closed, as was CPH that used to be served. SAA is still flying to CDG. Flights operate 5 times a week and go via ZRH (although the ZRH flight is daily).

South America

EZE and GRU are both served twice weekly non-stop from JNB, GIG operations have been ceased.


PER and SYD are still being served as a combination flight JNB-PER-SYD 4 times weekly. Situation will probably change next year, when a code share agreement with QF will come into effect.


Hong Kong served thrice weekly with own aircraft and 4 times as a code share flight operated by CX.
Bankok route flown thrice weekly. All flights operated by B747SP!
Bombay served 3 times a week, non-stop from JNB.
Operations to TPE have been ceased.

Middle East

SAA doesn't operate its own aircraft to the Middle East anymore. DXB is operated daily under a code share agreement with Emirates (with A330-200), whilst TLV is operated thrice weekly by El Al, usually in B767-200ER.


Apart from the Southern African destinations, SAA indeed operates into Lagos (3 weekly), Abidjan and Accra (served as a combination JNB-ACC-ABJ) in West Africa. Flights to Kinshasa have been ceased. The airline operates 3 flights into Luanda (LAD), daily flights to Nairobi (NBO), and 5 weekly connections to Mauritius (MRU).
All flight operate from JNB, non-stop flights from CPT to MRU were the last in a series to be ceased.
Some international south african flights are operated by South African Express and Airlink.
