South Africa: SAA increases African routes

Cape Town, South Africa (PANA) – South African Airways (SAA) on Tuesday announced that it has added additional flights to its network, substantially increasing air services to some of its key African routes.

The national airline said the additional capacity injection is in response to positive market growth.  

With immediate effect, SAA has included additional frequencies to Harare (Zimbabwe) and Maputo (Mozambique), with Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo). The Indian Ocean island of Mauritius will follow shortly.

“The strengthening of these routes comes in the wake of positive load factors and increased traffic between the countries,” said company SAA CEO Nico Bezuidenhout.

In terms of the new schedules, flights from Johannesburg to Maputo will increase from 17 to 21 per week, to Harare from 18 to 19, to Kinshasa from 6 to 7 and to Mauritius from 9 to 10.
