South African Airways launched Sizzling Summer Saver fares for the approaching peak season of U.S. travel to South Africa. Under the new price structure, fares from New York JFK or Washington D.C. Dulles start at $1,300 round trip.

The savings will continue after landing in Africa, according to SAA’s Marc Cavaliere, executive vice president for North America.

“Our special fares coupled with the extremely favorable exchange rate for the U.S. dollar make this summer the perfect season to explore South Africa,” said Cavaliere. “Now is the best time for North American travelers to plan a trip and there is no better way to start a South African experience than by flying South African Airways.”

Special lower-priced fares are also being offered for passage beyond Johannesburg to other South African cities, including Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Durban and East London.

In Africa, SAA offers flights from Johannesburg to more than 55 African destinations.

Codeshares with United Airlines, Air Canada and Jet Blue provide connection beyond New York and Washington D.C. to more than 30 North American cities.

The fares are available through April 30 for travel June 1-Aug. 10.
