Holidaymakers and business travelers can now fly to South Africa’s ‘friendly city’, Gqeberha, in the Eastern Cape with South African Airways (SAA). The first flight from Johannesburg to Gqeberha is set to depart, on Wednesday, 13 December 2023 at 11h25.

With December and January some of the busiest travel periods in South Africa, customers can now take advantage of SAA’s flights to Gqeberha, which links the two economic hubs of Gauteng and the Eastern Cape. This route provides much needed connectivity for business and connecting families and friends.  

SAA offers two return flights per day, seven days a week – between OR Tambo International Airport and Chief Dawid Stuurman International Airport in Gqeberha – for the duration of the festive season (see daily flight schedule below).
