Planes will depart from Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport at 22:15 on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays and arrive at Johannesburg at 05:30 the next day, local time. The returning planes take off at 19:25 on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays from Johannesburg and land in Guangzhou at 15:05 the next day, local time.

The travel time will be 13 hours and 40 minutes. The first flight will depart from Johannesburg on September 18 and arrive in Guangzhou on September 19.
