South African Airways Resumes Flights to Lagos

After almost two years of absence, South African Airways is set to resume scheduled flights to Lagos, Nigeria with effect from 12 December, 2021.

The flights will initially operate three times a week, on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays using an Airbus A320 aircraft offering business and economy class products.

Flight SA060 will depart O.R Tambo International Airport Johannesburg by 15:30 and arrive the Murtala Muhammad International Airport Lagos at 19:50. Flight SA060 will depart Lagos at 22:10 and arrive Johannesburg at 5:15 the next day. All times are local.

It will be recalled that South African Airways suspended flights to all destinations in 2019 as it was grounded after entering business rescue and receivership as a result of bankruptcy.

South African Airways resumed flight operations on 23 September, 2021 with services between Johannesburg and Cape Town. It has also resumed flights to a number of African destinations including Accra, Lusaka, and Harare. It will resume flights to Mauritius on 21 November, 2021.

To relaunch the Lagos-Johannesburg route, the airline is offering return fares starting from R6,626. To take advantage of the low fares, book your flights NOW at
