South Africa: British Airways Flights Starting at €399 From Austria & Germany (With Luggage)


British Airways currently offers tickets to South Africa from several airports in Germany and from Vienna, starting at €399. The offer is particularly interesting because it includes 23 kg of luggage. In addition to Johannesburg, two other destinations are also possible: Durban and Port Elizabeth.


Entry to South Africa is permitted but requires a test.

British Airways offers relatively generous rebooking rules that have recently been extended. All bookings can be canceled free of charge. You will then receive a voucher for the amount of the flight price, which can be redeemed until September 2023. In the case of a (voluntary) rebooking, however, the fare difference applies. More on this here on the BA website.

You can easily book the flights using the following search form. Simply select the desired departure airport, travel destination, and travel dates. We will then redirect you to British Airways’ booking site with one click. Please note that the offer is only valid for flights from September to December 2021.

Below are the prices for each destination and departure airport:

The flights always include a layover in London. For long-haul flights, the Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 are scheduled.

If you want to fly to Durban or Port Elizabeth, you have to change planes in Johannesburg. The connecting flight is then operated by the low-cost airline Kulula.
