South African Airways Questions

Mon Jun 27, 2016 5:02 pm

Why does South African Airways fly the Johannesburg-Perth route?

Also, why did South African Airways drop service from Johannesburg to Buenos Aires, Paris, Zurich, Beijing, and Mumbai?

Because Perth has a significantly large South African diaspora, and also acts as a connecting hub to other Australian cities in co-operation with VA.

It's also one of two direct air links between Australia and mainland Africa - the other being QF's SYD-JNB service.

For Zurich, because LX flies there all week long. It's maybe too much to fly two a340s daily.
