Delta Air Lines increases Johannesburg flights to 6 a week

Posted by David Henning on 19 May 2022

Delta Air Lines has announced that they will increase their frequency of flights between Atlanta and Johannesburg from three to six flights a week, starting this month.

This comes after an increased demand for additional flights. A Delta spokesperson told Travel News that ‘We are seeing significant demand for travel between South Africa and the US from both points of sale, US leisure travel being particularly dominant.’

Delta Airlines is also seeking to launch a triangular route between Atlanta, Johannesburg, and Cape Town. The Delta spokesperson stated that they will have more details on the route later this year.

The flights will depart Johannesburg’s OR Tambo Airport daily except for Tuesdays and will arrive in Atlanta the following day.
