Delta Restores Service to Africa, Returns to Johannesburg


Delta will make its return to South Africa with nonstop service between Atlanta and Johannesburg beginning Aug. 1, more than a year after pausing flights due to COVID-19.


The return of the airline’s longest nonstop flight marks the milestone of Delta restoring service to all its pre-COVID markets in Africa, which include Accra, Ghana; Dakar, Senegal; and Lagos, Nigeria.


Whether customers are looking to explore historical sites, travel along the country’s stunning coastline or go on safari, Delta’s local interline partners also provide convenient connections to Cape Town.


Delta’s flights to Johannesburg are operated in partnership with Air France, KLM, and Virgin Atlantic. Customers can also reach South Africa via Delta’s European hubs in Paris and Amsterdam.


Johannesburg flights will operate using the Airbus A350-900, marking the debut of one of Delta’s newest aircraft in its fleet between the U.S. and South Africa.


The aircraft features the award-winning Delta One Suites and Delta Premium Select cabins, large seat-back entertainment screens, and high-capacity overhead bins, among other enhancements.
