how long to fly to south africa from england


It takes about eleven hours to fly from England to South Africa. This may not seem like a short flight, but compared to flights to other parts of the world, it is not too bad. The flight will take you over some amazing scenery, including the Alps, before landing in Johannesburg.

The flight time from England to South Africa is approximately 11 hours. This includes a stopover in Johannesburg, which is the largest city in South Africa. The majority of flights depart from London Heathrow Airport, although there are also flights from other airports such as Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh.

The time difference between England and South Africa is +2 hours in summer and +1 hour in winter. This means that when it is noon in England, it is 2pm in South Africa in summer, and 1pm in winter.

There are a number of airlines that fly direct to South Africa from England, including British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, South African Airways and KLM. Prices vary depending on the airline and the time of year, but you can expect to pay around £600 for a return ticket.

When you arrive in South Africa, you will need to have a valid passport and a visa if you are planning to stay for more than 90 days. You will also need to have proof of vaccinations against yellow fever and cholera if you are arriving from certain countries.
