London flight prices
Hopefully we'll be back to exploring London's magical streets soon! South Africa is currently on the UK's Red List, which means only British nationals are allowed to travel from South Africa to the UK and then they have to complete 10 days quarantine in a hotel. There are no direct flights connecting South Africa to the UK currently.

Qatar Airways flights are to Doha, and then from Qatar onwards to the rest of the world.

The Purple shall rule! "I said a farewell to my Uncle and checked in for my next flight on Qatar Airlines. This was the first time I was to fly Qatar and I was curious as to how it would go, after hearing from a friend and travel agent that they were a reputable airline company on a par with Emirates... An added bonus was the extensive amount of entertainment available on the little rectangular screen in front of me. It took me just a few minutes before I indulged in a few crosswords and trivia quizzes...  I was excited to find tons of empty space and quickly secured an empty row of four seats, struggling to contain a cat-like purr of delight as I stretched my body across them." Margot travels on Qatar Airways from South Africa to England.
