South African Airways has announced significant route cuts in order to restructure itself to avoid losses.
From February 29, 2020, SAA will be cutting these international routes from Johannesburg:
- Hong kong
- São Paulo
From February 29, 2020, SAA will be cutting these regional/domestic routes from Johannesburg:
- Abidjan via Accra
- East London
- Port Elizabeth
Cape Town will be the only remaining domestic destination served by South African Airways.
However, domestic destinations served by subsidiary Mango will not be affected.

Accra (ACC) will still be served
Now, SAA will continue serve the following cities:
- London Heathrow
- New York JFK
- Washington Dulles via Accra
- Dar Es Salaam
- Cape Town
- Victoria Falls
Really not a good time for the airline. Recently, they announced they were looking to sell their A340s. Hopefully these cuts will allow them to recover.
