SAA resumes flights to the USPretoria - South African Airways (SAA) on Sunday resumed all flights from Johannesburg to Washington DC and New York City in the United States.

SAA spokesperson Tlali Tlali said flights resumed on Sunday evening after the airline received updates that adverse weather in the east coast of the US was beginning to ease off.

On Friday, the national carrier announced that it had cancelled flights to Washington DC and New York due to the bad weather associated with winter storm Jonas.

However, flight SA 208 from Washington (IAD) via Dakar (DKR) remained cancelled on Sunday while flight SA 204 from New York (JFK) to Johannesburg (JNB) on Sunday also remained cancelled.


About The Project

South Africa's conduct of international relations, especially its role in international organisations like the UN Security Council, its choice of strategic partnerships, its leadership role in Africa, its public engagement and foreign policy decision making, has been intensely debated in the recent past. The FPA programme aims to provide a nuanced analysis and facilitate a structured discussion of South Africa's foreign policy in a changing world environment for purposes of informing its future direction.

Aims and Objectives of The Project

The purpose of this focus area is to unpack the extent to which the policy in its making, its nature and its application constitutes a principled and pragmatic response to a complex international environment. In doing so, we hope to be guided by an objective to promote a foreign policy that positions SA as a responsible global citizen committed to building bridges between various power blocs for the benefit of Africa and South Africans.
