Posted by Anita Froneman on 21 January 2021

The Dutch government banned visitors from South Africa, Britain and all of South America on Wednesday, January 20. The ban will come into effect on Saturday, January 23.

‘This is a very tough measure, but we are at a crossroads,’ Prime Minister Mark Rutte according to The Sowetan. ‘The British variant doesn’t leave us with an alternative.’

KLM adjusted its flight schedules accordingly.

All flights between Johannesburg / Cape Town and Amsterdam will be cancelled from January 23.

Please note the following:

– KL 525 21 JAN AMS CPT will operate as scheduled

– KL 526 21 JAN CPT AMS will operate as scheduled

– KL 526 22 JAN CPT AMS will operate as scheduled

Air France schedules are not affected by these new regulations and will continue to operate (at least) 3 times per week between Johannesburg and Paris.

Those affected can contact +27 (0)10 205 0100 or +27(0)10 205 0101.
