Airfare to East London, South Africa
Lowest Daily Fares From the US to East London (Updated 4 Mar 2015)
Here are a few tips to help you find cheap airfare to East London:
- Consider flights into Johannesburg. To get from Johannesburg to East London, you can grab a spot on a train, bus or flight. Look for cheap flights on no frills airlines. Although it will take longer to reach your destination, a bus or train could save you enough cash to make it worth your while.
- Look for flights that go through Nairobi, Kenya; Cape Town, South Africa; Lagos, Nigeria or another major gateway city instead of flying direct. Because there are more flights – and competition – from these cities on low budget airlines, you can save some cash over flying non-stop to your destination. It is very common to layover in one of these main cities.
- Airfare to East London will be the cheapest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday. Mondays are popular with business travellers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers wanting the longest trips possible – avoid these dates. The most expensive air tickets to Durban are found during peak holiday travel times, such as the New Year. Also be aware of national events or festivals, which can also cause ticket prices to rise.
