Flight costs UK to Johannesburg

Hi Everyone,

This question is posed to those who have flown from the UK to Johannesburg in the past couple of years.

I'm potentially going to be flying this route in the 2nd half of April 2015, saying for 7-10 days.

What is a good price for this flight, and what is the cheapest time of year to book said flight?

Hello and we always Air France these days. Prices vary but it seems they are not fixed for cheap & expensive times for any reason. You should be able to fly to Paris from a local airport then overnight from there to Johannesburg. We paid just over £500 each at the end of Feb this year.

We usually travel in school holidays and I've generally paid around £700-800 for direct flights from the UK. It may be cheaper at other times - it looks like you'll be going after the school Easter holidays.

Flying via a European city is generally cheaper due to the lower long haul taxes imposed by other countries.

Just check the wensite over and over again, because all the arlones have some days discount fares. Thats the best to do to to. Also look at Lufthansa and Swiss. Good airlines

Last couple of times flown out KLM and back Air France and paid about £470 booked in October for November last year amazing value and in January to travel this May/June they often seem to reduce their fares but need to be flexible re dates, often travelled Sunday/ Monday and found cheapest. We like KLM as daytime flight and arrive evening and get good nights sleep before picking up our hire vehicle. Lufthansa also sometimes has similar prices keep looking.
