Where are the most popular flight destinations in Africa?

Egypt, Morocco, South Africa, Tunisia and Uganda are the most popular flight destinations in Africa.

How long is the flight to Africa?

Book flights to Africa from the three main airports in the UAE: Dubai International Airport (DXB), Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) and Sharjah International Airport (SHJ). Amongst the most established airlines flying to Africa are Emirates, Etihad Airways, Egypt Air and Qatar Airways. Find the most direct routes and cheap flights to Africa departing from Dubai and Abu Dhabi, with an estimated 3h 30min travel time to Cairo airport (CAI), in Egypt, and roughly 8h to Johannesburg O.R. Tambo airport (JNB) and 10h to Cape Town airport (CPT), in South Africa, and 8h to Casablanca Mohammed V. Airport (CMN), in Morocco. For flights to Africa from Sharjah, you can expect a 4h direct journey to Cairo and an approximate 9h journey to Johannesburg and Casablanca and 11h to Cape Town with at least one stopover, commonly in Doha (DOH). Select your departure and destination airport and find Africa flight deals on cheapflights.

What is the best way to travel around Africa?

After booking your flights to Africa, the next step is creating your own itinerary for the trip. For internal travel inside Egypt, your best bet is to opt for domestic flights, which are cheap and abundant. From Cairo, you can get to Alexandria in only 45min by plane. In Morocco, the trains are the preferred way to get around as they’re well-connected and inexpensive - from Casablanca, you can easily get to Marrakech in under 3h by train. In South Africa, however, hiring a car is the way to go for those who want efficiency and autonomy to visit all the sights around the main cities, like Cape Town and Johannesburg. However, for inter-city travel, flying is best due to the long distances. Flying to Africa can be easy and cost-efficient when you have the best tools at hand. To get affordable fares, compare flights to Africa through cheapflights.

What do I need to do before my flight to Africa?

There are some things you need to do in preparation for your flight to Africa. Although it’s not necessary to apply for a visa for visits to Egypt, Morocco, and South Africa for up to 90 days, you’ll need to present proof of accommodation, a return flight and enough funds for your trip. It’s also advisable that you exchange currency before your trip as, depending on your arrival time, services at the airports may not be open. All set to go? Save on Africa airfares with just a few clicks.
