A new airline has been launched in Australia by Sir Richard Branson, offering flights to South Africa.

V Australia - operating under the Virgin Blue Airline Group - will begin flying in March of next year, with three classes available.

Chief executive of the parent company Brett Godfrey explained that the carrier will be the only one operating a direct route from Johannesburg to Melbourne, with two departures per week initially.

The international business class will feature convertible beds that lie fully flat and a sit-down in-flight bar.

"We are already seeing encouraging signs from Australians wanting to travel to Johannesburg for the World Cup, business and leisure reasons," said Mr Godfrey.

A rise in demand for holidays in South Africa as a result of next year's football tournament finals was recently predicted by Terry Pilpin of American Express, who explained that the rand is already becoming more popular.
