Sia To Fly Daily To South Africa

Sia To Fly Daily To South Africa

Singapore Airlines (SIA) has initiated a series of moves to restructure its services to South Africa and better serve the southern African region.

Effective from 1 December 2002, the once-weekly Singapore-Mauritius-Johannesburg service will be replaced by two non-stop services to Johannesburg and two weekly services to Mauritius. At the same time, the number of weekly Singapore-Johannesburg-Capetown services will be increased from two to three.

With these changes, SIA will fly daily non-stop services from Singapore to Johannesburg, with three of these services operating beyond Johannesburg to Capetown, as well as twice weekly to Mauritius.

From 12 January 2003, the two weekly Singapore-Johannesburg-Durban services will be withdrawn, and instead these services will terminate in Johannesburg. The last SIA flight to Durban will depart from Singapore on 11 January 2003, while the last flight in the opposite direction will depart from Durban later the same day. Customers wishing to travel between Johannesburg and Durban will have no difficulty in selecting an alternative flight, as services are available frequently throughout the day.

For travelers originating in New Zealand, SIA operates daily services from Auckland to Singapore and five services per week from Christchurch, with low season fares of $2199, $2299 and $2399 to Mauritius, Johannesburg and Capetown respectively.
