About First Class flights to Johannesburg

Travelling to Johannesburg for a luxury safari? Make the flight match the stay with a First Class flight to Johannesburg. At First and Business, we can tailor make holiday packages to include First Class flights. Talk to one of our premium airfare experts today.

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.

Major airlines that fly First Class to Johannesburg

First Class flights from the UK to Johannesburg are available from London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle and Scotland with the following airlines: 

Our Travel Experts' recommendations

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.

Airport 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.
