how much does a plane ticket to south africa cost


A plane ticket to South Africa from the UK can cost anywhere from £500 to £1,500 depending on the airline, time of year, and how far in advance you book your flight. However, there are a few ways to get cheaper flights. One way is to fly into Johannesburg instead of Cape Town. Flights into Johannesburg are typically cheaper than those into Cape Town. Another way to get a cheaper flight is to fly during the shoulder season, which is usually April, May, or September. Shoulder season flights are typically cheaper than those during the high season, which is December to March. You can also often find cheaper flights by flying mid-week instead of on the weekends.

The cost of a plane ticket to South Africa varies depending on where you are flying from and what time of year you are flying. Generally, the closer you are to South Africa, the cheaper the flight will be. For example, flights from London to Johannesburg are usually around £500, while flights from New York to Johannesburg can be upwards of $1,000. The best time to find cheap flights to South Africa is during the shoulder season, which is between April and June, and again in September and October. These months are not as busy as the peak travel season (December to February), so you can often find good deals on flights and accommodation.
