“The reopening of SAA’s four weekly direct flights from Guarulhos International Airport in São Paulo, to OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and Cape Town International Airport in November 2023, is about connecting cities and bridging diverse cultures and experiences. Since the launch, the flights have a more than 60% load factor which is expected to grow” said Sthembiso Dlamini GTA’s CEO.

Within 9-10 hrs Brazilian travellers can immerse themselves in the rich tapestry of experiences that Gauteng offers – from its vibrant urban lifestyle to its stunning natural landscapes. It is an invitation to explore the #GPLifestyle -  a unique blend of adventure, culture, and cuisine that the province is renowned for.

With two flights from Johannesburg (Mondays and Thursdays, departing at 11.20am) and two flights from Cape Town (Tuesdays and Saturdays, departing at 12.55pm)

The Brazil route will also facilitate numerous export and import opportunities and augment existing trade relations between the two countries. By operating a wide body fleet of aircraft, with sufficient space to load palletised cargo, SAA is providing faster movement of goods from general cargo, pharmaceuticals, or high value cargo and boosting the movement of time-sensitive goods.
