Africa Collection are proud to have been working with South African Airways, the national carrier of South Africa, for as many years as we have been selling air travel.

We have a close working relationship with the airline and are excited to announce the news of their new fleet of aircraft introduced on the London / Johannesburg route (your gateway to Africa), offering an easy transfer from Johannesburg to Maun or Kasane, to begin your Botswana adventure.

On the 25th March the new Airbus A330-300 began flying the popular route between the United Kingdom and South Africa.

The fleet’s comfortable interiors, warm colours and relaxed atmosphere will make you feel right at home during your journey.

For Business Class customers, SAA offer a new design of flat-bed that’s almost 2 metres (6ft 6in) long when fully extended. With an updated cabin layout, each of these seats has increased privacy, individual aisle access and offer more personal stowage.

Economy Class is fitted with 203 newly designed, slim-line seats, all with extra personal space and generous legroom for travelling comfort. Each seat is fitted with a 10.1-inch screen, individual USB charging ports, and access to shared PC power points.

Boredom will not be an option on an SAA A330-300 flight thanks to the state-of-the-art on-demand in-flight entertainment system. Each Business Class seat is fitted with a 15-inch screen, whilst each Economy Class seat has its own 10-inch screen. These high-tech touch-screens are fun and easy to use, giving you access to many hours of entertainment. You’ll be spoilt for choice with over 100 movies to enjoy – from the latest blockbusters to old favourites and a wide selection of African and Asian titles. You can also access up to 100 TV features, including the latest full-season series, comedy shows and fun kids’ programming.

Children will be spoilt for choice with a special kids’ programme section. In addition, the airline has also added a family-friendly feature, whereby parents can ask a flight attendant to limit movies for a certain seat to kiddies’ view (movies for toddlers with no age restriction), or teen view (PG and PG13 movies and programmes).
