British airways travel to south africa

BA aircraft splits landing gear with 100

Thanks to the country’s development compared to most countries on the African continent, South Africa has very good communication with the rest of the world and easy access by all known means of transport.

It is the most used way to reach the country both through national and international airports.  It has two major international airports located in the two most important cities of the country: OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and Cape Town International Airport in Cape Town. These airports are the main gateway to the country and were renovated for the World Cup in 2010.

Johannesburg is an excellent benchmark for that expansion. In October 2017, it became one of two cities in the British Airways network, Los Angeles being the other, with dual A380 service. And, considering that both superjumbos remain on apron all day, largely due to customer preference for overnight travel, it’s a major commitment in terms of machinery.

When British Airways shifted a number of routes, including Accra, Las Vegas, Nairobi and Vancouver, to Heathrow Terminal 3, West African passengers were less than pleased. Local businesses promoted a boycott, and government officials made their displeasure known. Even Ghana’s president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has complained to the airline about the move.


Despite having long been a major Boeing customer, British Airways placed a major order for Airbus aircraft in August 1998 with the purchase of 59 Airbus A320 family aircraft. In 2007, it placed another large order, marking the beginning of the replacement of its long-range fleet, consisting of twelve Airbus A380s and twenty-four Boeing 787s. The centerpiece of the long-range fleet is the Boeing 747-400; with 57 in service, the airline is the largest operator of the type worldwide.

British Airways is a founding member of the Oneworld airline alliance, along with American Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Qantas, Iberia L.A.E. and the now defunct Canadian Airlines. Oneworld has since grown to become the third largest airline alliance after SkyTeam and Star Alliance. Prior to its merger with Iberia, which would create International Airlines Group, BA was listed on the London Stock Exchange and was one of the stocks included in the FTSE 100 stock index.
