The body was discovered on Saturday afternoon in the wheel-well of the plane parked at Dulles International Airport in Washington.
Per Second News reports that from information gathered by the Police that the South African Airways jet is now parked in a remote part of the airport.
The flight arrived in Dulles on Wednesday last week.
South African Airways has revealed that the plane had departed from Johannesburg and made a stop at Dakar, Senegal before heading to the U.S so it is not certain when the body got into the wheel well of the plane.
The Airways has also commenced an internal investigation into the discovery of a human body on its aircraft in Washington DC, United States of America.
