South African Airways Celebrates 10 years of Flying to Munich
For exactly 10 years, South African Airways (SAA), Africa’s leading international airline, has been connecting the Munich, Germany with the South African metropolis of Johannesburg.
Launched in July, 2007, the Johannesburg-Munich service initially operated three times a weekly but was quickly increased to daily flights in October 2007. Since then SAA has been offering a connection from Munich to Johannesburg daily.
Munich is a central hub of Star Alliance, of which SAA has been a member for over 10 years, and offers excellent onward connections especially to Southern and Eastern Europe.
The daily connection leaves Munich at 21H05 and reaches Johannesburg 07H40 the next morning. The return flight departs from Johannesburg at 20H35 and lands in Munich at 07H20.
South African Airways (SAA) is a leading carrier in Africa, serving 56 destinations, in partnership with SA Express, SA Airlink and its low-cost carrier, Mango, from its Johannesburg hub.
South African Airways currently operates daily service between Johannesburg and Munich using an Airbus A340-600 aircraft.
