Flights

Often referred to as the City of Gold, you'll be able to find your own riches with our cheap flights to Johannesburg. The economic heart of the country, Johannesburg, or Jozi as it's affectionately known, offers a fascinating insight into the challenges facing modern day post-apartheid South Africa. The city was founded after the discovery of gold in 1886 and essentially remained a prospecting town until the 1930s when there was a focus on construction. Today the sprawling metropolis is the country's largest city and offers interesting attractions deserving attention.

Johannesburg Airport

Direct flights from the UK to Johannesburg take approximately 11 hours and land at O.R Tambo International Airport. O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg is the busiest airport in Africa and the main transport hub of South Africa. Formerly known as Johannesburg International, the airport takes its name from Oliver Reginald Tambo, a former president of the African National Congress. O.R Tambo caters for over 17 million passengers per year and is the primary hub for South African Airways.

To gain a greater understanding of the country's turbulent history, consider exploring the Apartheid Museum before moving onto the Museum Africa on Mary Fitzgerald Square. Established by the apartheid Government during the 1960s, the district known as Soweto or South Western Townships, are a symbol of oppression and today, out of curiosity, visitors are expressing a desire to explore these areas in the west of the city.

 

For a panoramic view of Johannesburg, take the lift to the fiftieth floor of the Carlton Centre, the tallest building in Africa. Also consider exploring Constitution Hill, the site of a fort prison complex, visit Lion Park where you can pat lion cubs and wander through the Walter Sisulu Botantical Gardens, a beautiful oasis within the city. Just outside the city, you can investigate the Old Kromdraai Gold Mine, a mine that originally brought prosperity to the city. Visit these attractions and more with our cheap flights to Johannesburg.
