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.

Air Zimbabwe plans on reintroducing JNB-Harare flights from 5 November 2012.

The Purple shall rule! Bern took an SA Airlink flight from Durban to Maputo: "What contributed to my enjoyment of the flight was that it was on another cute little turbo propelled aircraft, this time a Jetstream 41. It only takes 29 people and there were only 11 on-board making it really comfy. Take-off was to the north-east so we had a lovely view of Durban and I couldn't help thinking as we flew over uShaka Marine World that that was the closest I have been to my office for a while! The disappointing part of the flight was that from just past Durban there was cloud cover all the way to Maputo so I didn't get to see the lovely KZN coast."
