After many teary goodbyes and lots of hugs as the group departed from the African Leadership Academy, they arrived at the airport with plenty of time to shop and buy snacks for the flight. Cate and Sarah reported that all were in good spirits and looking forward to returning home.
The group boarded their South Africa Airway flight #203 to JFK which was delayed by 1.5 hours and they are currently in air. SAA flight 203 is due to arrive at 7:25am EST tomorrow (Thursday, 1/24) at JFK. Once they have landed, collected their luggage and passed through immigration, I will give you an updated estimated time of arrival at Porter’s.
