Seems as if South Africa is currently more popular than ever with visitors; from btonline.co.uk:
'Several airlines are considering adding services to South Africa as demand for flights increases.
Both Austrian Airlines and Alitalia might resume flights to South Africa, which both carriers withdrew earlier this year. Alitalia subsidiary Eurofly and new European carrier Volare are also planning to launch South African routes.
According to Carmine Bassetti, executive director of Airports Company of South Africa (Acsa), Eurofly could introduce six South Africa-bound flights per week from next April and Austrian Airlines is considering the reintroduction of one or two flights a week, at least one being direct to Cape Town.
Monhla Hlahla, CEO of Asca, has asked South African Airways to use aircraft withdrawn from its New York service to operate on its services from Johannesburg to Paris and Zurich.
Other airlines have recently increased frequencies to the country. KLM, for example, has recently added three weekly flights from Amsterdam.
Lufthansa has introduced six weekly flights from Munich to Johannesburg.
The likes of Virgin Atlantic and Air France are now operating their flights to Johannesburg on larger planes.
South Africa is being seen by tourist and business travellers as a safer destination than some cities in Europe and the US in the wake of the September 11 attacks.'
