Subject to the lifting of travel restrictions, we will serve close to 170 destinations by the end of Summer 2020, that is 85% of our usual network. You can connect to these flights from South Africa and fly to these destinations across Europe and the world via Paris – Charles de Gaulle.

We can't wait to welcome you back on board one of our flights soon and are committed to ensure a safe flying experience for all our passengers and crew.
