Virgin Atlantic will be starting a second daily flight service between OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and Heathrow Airport in London.
The new flights go on sale on 24 March 2018, but will only start departing on 28 October later this year with a Boeing 787-9 which will have in-flight WiFi. Between the two flights, the airline expects to transport over 300 000 passengers annually and will also increase cargo capacity between the two countries.
The new flight will leave London at 16:45 and will land at 05:40 the next day in South Africa, and the return flight will depart at 22:20 and land 07:30 in London.
The flight has been timed to enable customers to easily connect on to flights with Virgin Atlantic and Delta to over 200 US destinations, including Los Angeles and San Francisco.
