GETTING THERE

For curious South African travellers, Réunion offers much more than a beach holiday, although beaches, watersports and endless lazy days are definitely on the menu, if you choose – with no need for visas and regular direct flights.
Air Austral, the French airline of the Indian Ocean, is the only airline to offer direct non-stop flights between Reunion and Johannesburg three times a week - Sundays, Wednesdays & Fridays. They also offer connections to, and from, many domestic and neighboring airports in the area.

Enjoy the comfort of all-leather seats in either Premium Economy or Economy class on board. Not only has the recent lifting of the visa requirement for South African passport holders made it possible for South Africans to have a trouble-free stay in Reunion Island, but it has also made it easier for them to combine their stay with our other destinations: Mauritius, Madagascar, Mayotte, Comores, Seychelles, Paris, Chennai, Bangkok, and Perth.

Distance Reunion - South Africa : 2833 km
Flight time Saint-Denis - Johannesbourg : about 4h10min
