SA212: Atlanta/Johannesburg (South African Airways) - This flight is 8439miles. To my knowledge, this is currently the longest nonstop flight (mileage) in the world. It is therefore longer than EWR
-bounded flights, from Johannesburg, have been stopping over in Dakar, instead of SAL Island (SID) from 01 October 2003.
On the return, SA202 flies 4x a week nonstop from JFK
to Johannesburg. SA204 goes out 3x a week from JFK
to Johannesburg, with a stopover in Dakar
Both SAA destinations in the USA (Atlanta and JFK
) will be serviced with the new A346, from early in 2004. It seems as if ATL
will be receiving the A346 from 01 January 2004 and JFK
from 09 February 2004.
