SAA resumes non-stop flight to New York

Ft. Lauderdale - South African Airways (SAA) has announced that it is resuming its non-stop flights between Johannesburg and New York's JFK International Airport.

The non-stop flight will resume on March 9, nearly three weeks ahead of its original schedule of March 28.

While SAA’s New York-Johannesburg flight has continued to operate on a non-stop daily basis, the return flight has been temporarily making a 1-hour refuelling stop in Dakar, Senegal, due in part to lower travel demand during the winter months.

The non-stop flight will be timed to arrive in New York in the early morning, allowing customers to connect on flights to points throughout North America.
 
“We’re pleased to be able to resume the northbound non-stop flight ahead of schedule,” said Marc Cavaliere, executive vice president, North America for South African Airways.

“Over the years, this service has become exceptionally popular, with our customers praising the combination of its schedule, the ease of connections both throughout the African continent and in the United States.”
