From The Blue Skies of Singapore to Africa’s Mile High City

SINGAPORE to JOHANNESBURG

So there really isn’t much to explain about this flight, last week Johannesburg was featured and It was about 10PM Eastern time and I wanted to do an overnighter into Johannesburg and I found that flying from Singapore fit my “timeframe”. I’ve seen this route on FR24 before so I decided to fly it. Singapore Airlines flies their A350 on this route to Johannesburg, and then it continues on from Johannesburg on a short 2 hour flight down to Cape Town. I was going to fly this leg but I had to have an online class for school 😡. Flight time was 9 hours and 52 minutes.

Thanks Julian! As I said with my Qatar post, Indonesia is always great, and I love random little islands like that one in the Pacific!
