SAA Boosts Washington Services

South African Airlines (SAA) will increase frequencies between Washington DC’s Dulles International Airport (IAD) and Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport (JNB) via Accra’s Kotoka International Airport (ACC) to five flights a week, starting April 02.

The flight, which has operated since 2015, takes the airline’s West Africa-Washington operations to seven flights a week, including the twice-weekly service from Dakar.

American Airlines codeshare with United Airlines gives passengers easy access to more than 100 cities across the US and Canada via IAD.
The IAD-ACC route will be operated by an Airbus A330-200 and A330-300. The Airbus A330-200 offers 36 flat-bed seats in business class and 186 seats in economy class while the larger Airbus A330-300 offers 46 seats in business class and 203 in economy.


SAA has also entered into a codeshare with Africa World Airlines which allows passengers easy connection to other destinations in West Africa, including Lagos and Abuja in Nigeria, Monrovia in Liberia and Freetown in Sierra Leone.
