Peak season:

Johannesburg enjoys warm summers that span from November through February, but depending on what kind of itinerary you have planned, the best time of the year for you to visit Johannesburg could vary. Summer is Johannesburg’s peak tourist season, which means that flights booked for this time of the year will often be most expensive.

 

Off season:

You may find that booking flights to Johannesburg can often be done most cheaply when it’s booked outside of the peak summer season. Do make sure that there are no major festivals taking place during your predetermined time of travel, as this may very well rev up the flight and accommodation prices in Johannesburg, even during the quieter, off-season months, which run from March through October.

 

 

When is the best time to book a flight to Johannesburg?

As soon as you’ve decided on when the best time would be for you to visit Johannesburg, go ahead and book your flight tickets. The odds of finding great deals on flights and accommodation are much higher when you’re booking as far along in advance as possible. Another thing you should keep in mind is flexibility. The more flexible you are with your traveling dates, the more likely you’ll be of finding the best rates for flights to and from Johannesburg.

 

 

Which day is cheapest to fly to Johannesburg?

Thursday is currently, on average, the cheapest day to fly to Johannesburg. Flying on Sunday will result in higher flight prices.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Johannesburg?

At the moment, flights in the evening are likely to offer the best value for money for your Johannesburg trip. A flight in the morning will more often than not be of higher cost.

Also known as “the City of Gold,” Johannesburg is the commercial heart of South Africa, and as such, it only makes sense that it’s one of the most popular gateways to exploring all that the rainbow nation has on offer. Taking a cheap flight to the Pan-African capital city of Johannesburg could very well see you exploring the world’s largest urban forest, a city that rewards curiosity and a sense of adventure with the likes of a performance and fine arts scene unlike anything else on the face of the earth.

 

How long is the flight to Johannesburg?

Cape Town to Johannesburg               2 hours
Durban to Johannesburg                     1 hour, 15 minutes

 

 

 

Which airlines operate flights to Johannesburg?

There are quite a lot of airlines that operate cheap flights to Johannesburg daily. While booking a flight with a carrier such as Mango or Kulula.com might see you paying the most affordable rates possible, keep in mind that airlines such as South African Airways and British Airways do offer more onboard comfort and added extras such as snacks and drinks en-route to Johannesburg.

 

How to get from the airport to the city center?

 

Getting from the OR Tambo International Airport can be done in a few ways. You can take the Reya Vaya bus parked outside of the arrival terminals, which is a safe and cost-effective way of commuting between the airport and the city center, but you can also take a ride with a pre-ordered Uber cab. Another way of getting to the city center is by making use of the Gautrain, which will take you all the way to Sandton City, from where you can then take a taxi to get to exactly where you need to be. Alternatively, you can also enquire with the hotel you’re staying with to find out whether they offer a complimentary shuttle service from the airport to the hotel.
