About First Class Flights to Johannesburg

First Class flights from London Heathrow to Johannesburg have a direct flight time of around 11 hours, while flights departing from other areas of the UK usually require a stopover. First Class flights offer an exciting and comfortable way of travelling to Johannesburg with benefits including private suites, fully flat beds, quality entertainment, and inspired dining services. As memorable an experience as the trip itself, flying First Class also allows you to start your holiday from the very moment you set foot in the airport.

We recommend

Though both airlines offer excellent First Class travel, we recommend opting for Emirates to experience their luxury shower spa in the air. Available onboard their A380 aircraft, the contemporary shower system allows you to wash and rejuvenate mid-flight with the signature Timeless Spa shower kits. Other highlights of the airline include world-class dining, exclusive entertainment, lounge access and a private suite equipped with a sliding door, wardrobe and fully flat bed.

Lounge access

The O.R. Tambo International Airport Johannesburg is home to several airline lounges. First Class passengers can enjoy access to British Airways' luxurious Galleries First lounge, boasting the chandelier-lit Gold Bar, where guests can indulge in a range of unique wines and spirits. The airport’s other First Class Lounge is the Emirates Lounge, found on the Mezzanine Level between Gates A4 and A7. Here, you can relax on leather armchairs, freshen up in the showers and choose from a mouth-watering selection of complimentary food.
