JNB - CPT flight/transfer time

Jump to last reply

Hi - I just cashed in miles for last minute-ish quick trip to Capetown (just five full days). I want to fly on to Capetown after arriving in JNB that evening. (Flying direct from ATL.) If my ATL-JNB flight arrives around 5:35, how much time to I need to allow for onward flight to CPT? I see a 7:30 flight but not sure if that gives me enough time to get to domestic and check in, etc after international arrival. I'd prefer not to wait around till 9:30 flight if not necessary.

Also, my flight back to ATL is around 8pm. How early of a flight do you recommend I take back to JNB? I don't want to cut it too close but don't want to waste a day sitting in airport. I've flown out of numerous airports in Africa and not had the best experience with flights leaving when they are supposed to, but those in which I had issues (that I expected) were absolutely not Capetown/JNB caliber of airports! (Never been there.)

Many thanks in advance for any input!
