South African Airways is now offering daily flights to Washington, D.C. on its new state-of-the-art aircraft.

The company’s new Airbus A330-300 provides new flights on the Washington, D.C.-Dulles to Accra, Ghana, route – a route that compliments its existing route between Washington, D.C. and Dakar, Senegal, which the new aircraft will also fly on.

The interior design of the aircraft offers travelers a comfortable environment during long flights with warm, neutral colors, textures and finishes meant to compliment the airline’s African culture and heritage.

Travelers using South African Airways can also take advantage of the company’s Step-up program to experience the new Premium Business Class product, which offers a 180-degree flat-bed, direct aisle access, gourmet meals, South African wine, an on-demand entertainment system, noise canceling headphones, power and USB ports at every seat, as well as increased privacy.
