Africa on Sale, $1,199 from South African Airways



South African Airways (SAA) has announced a fall sale with fares starting at $1,199 for its flights from Washington, DC (Dulles) or New York (JFK) to Johannesburg, South Africa. These low fares are available for purchase now through June 18th for select departures between November 1 – December 13, 2012 and January 14 – February 28, 2013. Low fares are also available to other destinations the airline serves, including Dakar, Senegal. Certain restrictions apply for these fares.

“These fares present a great opportunity for the Senegalese and South African communities in the US to visit friends and family at our great low fare,” said Todd Neuman, executive vice president, North America, for South African Airways. “For leisure travelers who already love these destinations, or those who haven’t yet discovered it, it provides an affordable way to schedule a vacation and experience the rich culture, heritage and beauty of Africa.”

South African Airways offers the most service to both Johannesburg and Dakar. Daily flights are operated with wide-body Airbus A340 aircraft featuring Premium Business Class with 180 degree lie-flat seats, and industry-leading legroom for Economy Class passengers, complemented by the airline’s unique brand of warm African hospitality.
