Joon Cape Town Flights

Paris is always a good idea! Joon (JN) is a French airlinethat used to operate direct flights from Cape Town to Paris and onwards. Joon was a subsidiary of Air France and the plan was for them to take over several of the airline's long-haul routes.

Joon's first flight only took off in December 2017. Although the airline was a full service carrier, they did operate selected routes (mostly European) on a low-cost model.

Air France Discontinues JOON

Air France announced last week, on the 10th of January 2019, that they will discontinue the JOON brand and integrate the airline's staff and aircraft into the Air France brand. This follows an analysis into the JOON brand which proved that it diluted the Air France brand. Going forward they will focus on building a premium airline under the Air France name and focus on addressing issues like flat beds in business class. There is no word yet on when JOON flights will be taken over by Air France, but we don't expect any disuption to passengers booked on a JOON flight between France and Cape Town.

Baggage Changes

Passengers travelling in economy class on Joon to or from South Africa will soon only be allowed one piece of checked baggage at 23kg. This change will only affect passengers travelling on ticketes issued after the 30th of October 2018. Please note that not all Joon flights includes checked luggage. Please consult your ticket to confirm your baggage allowance.

European Flight

2018-04-16 : "Our Euro trip included a connecting flight from Porto to Paris on Joon airlines. It was only a short three hour flight, but it was fairly pleasant. Our checked baggage was included as we purchased it in conjunction with Air France flights.. They do however operate on a low-cost basis, with no checked baggage or meals included on the lowest class. We didn't purchase anything to eat or drink, but it all looked fairly pleasant. Our flight was on-time, the aircraft was fairly clean and the staff friendly (or as friendly as the French can be!) We couldn't ask for much more with such amazing airfares."

Rating = 4/ 5
